What people are saying:

About 15 kilometers east from Safranbolu, there is an ancient village with a history of about 300 years. There are many beautiful, even dilapidated old houses. These old houses once lived with dervishes of the Bektasi sect. The government forced the nomads to settle here and levied taxes on them. Later, the villagers became rich because of their superb bread baking skills. The first floor of the house here is made of stone walls, and the second floor is made of wood as a skeleton and then laid with dried bricks. More than 100 old houses, public baths and mosques have been preserved in the village. There are only about 500 people left in the entire Yoryuk Village, most of whom are elderly. Some middle-aged people also stay here mainly by opening their houses for sightseeing. This is a small village not far from Safranbolu. It has an original flavor and still retains the previous living habits and decorations. You will feel very peaceful and quiet when you come here. The villagers who love beauty decorate these old houses beautifully and distinctively. Most of the old people who stay in Yoryuk Village are mainly old people who open their houses for sightseeing and also open some handmade shops, such as bronze products and porcelain. Point, hand-made food. When we were touring the village, we saw an old woman saying goodbye to other people-hugging. This scene is like a movie appearing in front of us from time to time. Their embrace is so natural and affectionate, and it is definitely not what the movie does. Can show.
