“Odunpazari Historical Urban Site” is a significant example to cities established totally by the Turks within Anatolia. It’s an urban workshop with the best preserved examples of traditional Turkish architecture and an open-air museum where the structure of the traditional Turkish neighborhood with its entire pattern is maintained. A visit there is very easy from the city center. The people who actually live there can share the real challenges of living in such a place, rather than living in an apartment. Go and see the history alive!

2. 2. Little Venice: The Gondolas

How about continuing your romantic vacation with a gondola tour inside of the city? Eskisehir provides you the opportunity to see the city center inside of a gondola. Have your darling next to you, and your wine glass for the other hand.

Swimming is a fundamental for a short vacation! Enjoy your beach without wondering about sea creatures biting you. Eskisehir provides a mini-beach that you can tent and enjoy your moments in a daily-fresh water source.

You can see the whole view from the upside of the chateau, you can have picnic in the grass area or ride boats in the lake. A sunny day with a soft wind touch to your hair is all you need to feel fresh again.

5. Let's get some art here!
