Ordu, ancient Kotiora, is a city in the central strech of Turkish Black Sea coast.

Understand[edit]

Thanks to the fierce local opposition, Ordu features the only urban waterfront along the entire length of Turkish coast east of Samsun that wasn't significantly altered by the ugly embankments of the coastal motorway.

Ordu has a population of about 137,000.

Get in[edit]

Ordu lies on the coastal highway D010.
