Sinop's main shopping street

Sinop is a city in the Black Sea region of Turkey.

Sinop is a charming Black Sea port town with excellent views. You can easily spend a day here wandering around the town, restaurants and sea front, although you could also easily see everything in half a day.

Get in[edit]

There is a daily Turkish Airlines morning flight to Istanbul-Atatürk Airport.

Get around[edit]

Sinop is easily navigable by foot. Parking is likely to be difficult in the summer.

See[edit][add listing]

Sinop has impressive fortifications running through much of the town. The walls stand at 3 meters thick and up to 30 meters high, with 7 large towers.

Do[edit][add listing]

Between 9 and 23 August near Sinop - a proposed site for a nuclear power plant - the international activist gathering Ecotopia will be held [1].

Buy[edit][add listing]

Grilled fish at one of the small restaurants.

Eat[edit][add listing]

Get up early and visit one of the local bakeries for a fresh loaf of Ekmek (a sourdough bread). Served hot and sometimes with butter and honey - It is a treat for the taste buds. A warm cup of tea goes well with this treat.

There is a large number of informal open-air cafes along the harbor serving deliciously fresh fish.

Drink[edit][add listing]

One of the fortified towers has turned into a cafe/bar, and is a great place to get a drink. It also has a good night scene. The mavi esinti cafe is on the sea front and have free wifi connection.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

  • Yilmaz Aile Pansiyonu, Kurtulus Caddesi, close to the port, [2]. A budget place - 20 YTL for a basic double (summer 2005), shared bathroom, reasonably clean. In August 2012: the price is 30TL for a basic double room. Bathroom and WC are smelly. The general cleaning is not enought. No wifi. July 2013: The price for a double without bathroom but with fan and TV was 80 but easily negotiated to 50. The place seems recently renovated, it's clean and has wifi. View and location can't be beaten.  edit

Get out[edit]

A direct bus leaves Sinop at 8 PM, and arrives in Trabzon at 6 AM, and continues on to Rize.
