OverviewHide
Sinop, Turkey’s provincial capital and northernmost city, is also the country’s only natural harbor. Your first stop here is the Sinop Archaeological Museum, a modern space that’s home to a vast array of archaeological treasures including a 4th-century AD Meydankapi mosaic and an incredible collection of Byzantine religious objects, plus so much more. After touring the museum and its garden, it’s just a short walk to the 19th-century Ottoman Arslan Torun mansion in the center of town, which is home to the Ethnography Museum. Walking through the three-story former residence you’ll get a glimpse into the Ottoman’s traditions through exhibits that showcase their clothing, tools, art, textiles, and furniture, with old photographs that provide deeper meaning to the city’s cultural heritage. From here, it’s onto the Alaaddin Mosque, built by the Seljuk sultan, Alaaddin Keykubat, after the Seljuks invaded Sinop in 1214. It remains one of the most significant Seljuk buildings in Sinop, revered for its ornate features and exquisite fountain. Finally, walk along the Ancient City Walls that were built in 2000 BC as you make your way back to pier.
