One of Turkey’s undiscovered jewels is Safranbolu, a unique location to include on your travel itinerary there. Let me first reassure you that a vacation to Safranbolu will be entirely worthwhile if you are still debating it. No other Turkish city can compare to the old-world charm of this historic town, which may not have the glitz and glamour of Istanbul or the breathtaking vistas of Cappadocia. Safranbolu is one of the best places to visit in Turkey because of its stunning Ottoman houses, vibrant mediaeval bazaar, distinctive architecture, welcoming population, and picturesque landscapes.
During the Ramadan Feast, the Safranbolu area of Karabük, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, welcomed 150 thousand domestic and foreign visitors.
With its hotels, baths, mosques, fountains, houses, and bridges from the Ottoman era, the historical neighbourhood, which resembles an outdoor museum, made the most of the three-day Ramadan Feast vacation. With its cobblestone streets, Safranbolu, also known as “the capital of protection,” “the fingerprint of the Ottomans,” and “the city that protects itself,” transported its guests back in time.
The hotels in Safranbolu, a Turkish city that is also on the UNESCO World Heritage List, provided full service, and the vendors in the Historical Bazaar were happy with the turnout. The Eid holiday was enjoyable, according to ebnem Urgancolu Ergüder, president of the Safranbolu Tourism Operators Association (SAFTD). Ergüder remarked that the holiday had been rather intense, adding:
“We believe we have hosted around 150 thousand guests. This was already apparent based on the volume of traffic. The fact that Safranbolu is the most beautiful season of spring and that it fell on an interim holiday, when the new season had not yet begun, also had a significant impact. We were told that our hotels were completely booked and that our craftsmen were doing quite well.”
