Saffron City is a very famous tourist attraction, many tourists not far from the name of the city, here to punch in the photo, everyone to see it!
The red house is very distinctive, a bit similar to the meaning of an ancient Chinese town. It is worthwhile to stroll around when you have time. The specialty roses here sell rose products everywhere. The most famous one is rose water, which is quite good and cheap.

❤Saffron City in my eyes❤
In the best-preserved Ottoman town in Turkey, patches of red-tiled roof buildings stand side by side, neat and small, delicate and textured like ribbons decorating gift boxes.
The old town of the town is called Carsi. It is small in size. The winding streets and alleys are connected to each other. The cobblestone streets are full of age, which makes people like it. On both sides of the small streets and alleys, there are candy shops, cobbler shops, hand-made garment shops, coffee shops...The composition of shops here seems to be the most original pattern, and it has not changed because of the arrival of tourists. Crowded, tacky, and marketable.
In Safranbolu, what makes me unforgettable is the hotel here. Although it is only the grade of a homestay, the Ottoman scenes created in the guest rooms-primitive wooden floors, carved ceilings, traditional closet-style bathrooms, hand-embroidered curtains, etc., are still very surprising.
Like other places in Turkey, the cats and dogs here are not arrogant or clingy. Under the pampering and protection of everyone, they spend spring, autumn, winter and summer carefree...
Here, take a walk and take a look, then you can understand why UNESCO listed Safranbolu in the "World Heritage List" as early as 1994.
1. The night market in Saffron Old Town is more interesting, with an authentic Turkish style. Most of the hotels here are decorated or structured in the Ottoman Turkish era. It is worth staying for one night.
2. The "Grandpa's Shop" in Saffron City sells Turkish specialties at relatively low prices. But I personally feel that it is not as cheap as the Grand Bazaar. Moreover, the grandfather also has a T treasure shop, and refuses to sell to purchasing agents with large purchases, hahaha!
3. Fudulk Hill is the commanding height of the city, and you can see a pretty panoramic view of the small town.
Turkey's representative attraction, is the human cultural heritage, well preserved ancient city! Stroll the ancient city, you can enjoy all kinds of red dome art architecture, all kinds of Turkish folk customs and so on! The saffron tea is also famous!
Mu Yuhan is great, enthusiastic, fun, cost-effective, very nice girl
Some people say that Saffron City is Turkey’s Gulangyu Island. Although I have never been to Gulangyu Island, I believe that the historical and cultural atmosphere here must be stronger. If you look closely at the red-tiled houses that have been around for hundreds of years, you can experience the flow of time. Traces and glory of the empire of the past. Although the tourists are like weaving, but the security and simplicity remain unchanged. There are so many fascinating details, I really love it here!
Beautiful scenery! Have fun, come and see it.
Safranbolu (also known as Safranbolu)-is a town located in central Anatolia, Turkey. In 1994, Safranbolu was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The origin of saffron is because this area is rich in saffron, a kind of grass flower similar to Chinese medicine, which is used to make tea locally. When we arrived, we tasted this kind of scented tea in the tea shed. The locals made tea for us in ritual-like movements. Standing on the highest point, holding a cup of golden scented tea, overlooking this beautiful mountain city, it was very pleasant. By the way, drinking this tea is the most authentic if you drink it with local honey.
