Nearby Attractions

Eskisehir, although its name means “Old City” in Turkish, is today a thriving modern city that is at once a university town and high-tech manufacturing centre, yet still is consciously respectful of its heritage and roots. The city is home to Eskisehir Osmangazi University and Anadolu University, which has one of the world’s largest enrolments. As a manufacturing centre, Eskisehir produces everything from trucks and railway locomotives to jet fighter engines and meerschaum, sugar and chocolate. Founded by the Phrygians in 1000 BC, it remained an important centre in the Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine eras, when it was known by its Latin name Dorylaeum. Noteworthy residents of the city include the 13th century Turkish folk poet and Sufic philosopher Yunus Emre and the world-famous folk sage and philosopher, Nasreddin Hodja. With numerous important historic sites, ranging from the Odunpazari historic district to the Kursunlu Mosque Complex, as well as important nearby archaeological excavations, Eskisehir will richly reward visitors who choose to explore the city.

Odunpazari District

Odunpazari District

Odunpazari is the historic Ottoman district of Eskisehir, where narrow stone lanes are fronted on either side by Ottoman-style homes with their traditional bays on the upper floors overhanging the street and accented with heavy wooden shutters. The first Turkish quarter of what, until then, had been a Roman and then Byzantine town, some of these structures date back to the Seljuk period, while the remainder are landmarks to the five-hundred-year Ottoman reign. The district’s name literally means “firewood market” and hearkens back to the time centuries ago when firewood was sold in the area. Exploring this neighbourhood’s winding streets and discovering the aesthetics of its traditional architecture are a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, but you will not want to miss the area’s other attractions, most notably the Kursunlu Kulliyesi.

Kursunlu Mosque Complex

Kursunlu Mosque Complex

Located in the historic Odunpazari district of Eskisehir, the Kursunlu Kulliyesi, or Mosque Complex, named for its lead-covered dome, was built in 1525 by Coban Mustafa Pasha according to the inscription over the entrance to the complex. Construction of the complex took place from 1517 – 1525 and was overseen by the master Ottoman architect Acem Ali. In addition to the mosque, the complex consists of a vaulted imaret (alms-house) and adjacent, domed aşevi (kitchen). The Ottoman caravanserai, which was built shortly after the main complex, is attributed to the great Ottoman architect, Sinan, and today is used to host weddings, while the madrasa, or religious school, is now home to the delightful Museum of Meerschaum, which displays a wide variety of samples of how this unique white rock can be shaped and carved into delightful items.

Eskisehir Eti Archaeology Museum

Eskisehir Eti Archaeology Museum

With a collection of more than 18,000 artefacts, the Eskisehir Eti Archaeology Museum ranks among Turkey’s most technologically sophisticated museums of archaeology, giving visitors the chance to enjoy a remarkable collection well-displayed and featuring a variety of interactive visitor tools. The museum is divided into three main halls. Of these halls, the first features finds from the Eskisehir region dating to the Neolithic and Chalcolithic eras, the Early Bronze Age and the Hittite and Phrygian Empires. The second hall also displays artefacts from Eskisehir Province and includes items from the Hellenistic and Roman periods, as well as rich collections of Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman artefacts. The third hall is devoted to stone artefacts, including sculptures, votive statuary, architectural elements and Roman floor mosaics, as well as finds from the Babadat excavations.

Kent Park

Kent Park

The beautiful Kentpark, or City Park, is a masterpiece of city planning and urban beautification reminiscent of New York’s Central Park or Paris’s Bois de Boulogne. With a man-made beach carved out of the Porsuk River as well as stables and horseback riding, not to mention carriage rides and gondola tours on the river, Kentpark offers visitors a wide variety of activities to enjoy. One of the most important features of the city and a source of pride for the municipality and residents alike, Kentpark is a great way to spend an afternoon enjoying Eskisehir’s continental climate.

Eskisehir Alaaddin Mosque

Eskisehir Alaaddin Mosque

This Seljuk-era mosque was constructed in 1267 AD during the reign of the Seljuk emperor Giyassedin Keyhusrev III. Since its original construction, the mosque has been repaired and modified on numerous occasions, eliminating much of the architectural detail of the original Seljuk structure. From 1944 – 1951 it was home to the Eskisehir Archaeology Museum and housed artefacts collected from the region around the city and Eskisehir Province. Following the opening of the permanent home of the Archaeological Museum, the Eskisehir Alaaddin Mosque was reopened as a place of worship.

Museum of Republican History

Museum of Republican History

Housed in one of the earliest buildings from the Republican Era, a striking example of the First National Period of Architecture associated with the years shortly after proclamation of the Republic in 1923, the museum’s collection is rich in photographs and artefacts from the Turkish War of Independence and the early Republican Era. Its walls are covered in period photos from the Battle of Gallipoli in the First World War and the battles of Sakarya and Dumlupinar in the War of Independence. It also houses a collection of personal effects belonging to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Turkish Republic as well as 50 portraits of Atatürk.

Sazova Park

Sazova Park

The newest park in Eskisehir, Sazova Park appeals to the reflective and the young-at-heart with the largest Japanese garden outside Japan as well as a kids’ castle below which is moored a Turkish-style “Kalyon” (galleon) pirate ship. Great for an afternoon stroll or to take the kids if you are travelling with your family.
