Visiting the Yoruk Village is definitely a must as it was an old capital of Safranbolu. We visited two nicely maintained homes, one owned by Felice and her brother in law, Hussain. These two homes are the better ones in the neighbourhood as the owners...More

We stopped for a couple hours to explore this hidden gem. Talk about a step into the past. It was incredibly interesting to learn about Yörük village and the history of life there. After wandering around the village and admiring the houses, we met several...More

Beautiful village! The streets, the houses take you centuries back. Enjoyed walking around and sitting at the quaint place near the mosque. Delicious homemade baklava and gozleme.

An Ottoman village nearby of Safranbolu. Very calm place. This village is like a open air museum. You can visit some houses.

This is not a typical 'village', which at least in Turkey, usually means very rustic and populated by uneducated people. The people living here are the original inhabitants or at least their descendants. They have renovated the buildings similar to those you see in Safranbolu....More

We visited at the very start of the season. We were the only tourists there and not everywhere was open. But it was spellbinding. The architecture is amazing and the bucolic feel of the place is intoxicating. Quick and easy from Safranbolu. Well worth the...More
