  • Location and the staff. The place is surrounded by the old antep streets and stone houses. Already interested in other historical attractions and very close to the Museum. Not open to the public all Yes, renovation continues. A section describing the Visual, documentary and salvation of Gaziantep to text. As you know, sense, not a museum. If you are not fond of or with little kids just to be seen, of course, read, watch, listen you uğradıysanız zul. Don't go around that time. I replaced the kurtuluşundaki and Anatolia, Gaziantep, a reminder of the importance should not be given due to unfair labor.

  • The fortress is built in Roman times, later modified and enlarged during the Byzantine Empire by Justinian and further modified in Ottoman times. The renovation is aggressive as like to do around here (must look new), you can walk around and see the small museum inside devoted to popular uprisings of 1921 against Anglo-French occupation forces (only part open to visitors of the Castle). Inside the Museum there are statues of Bill extremely cheesy that reconstruct the facts and explanatory panels in Turkish and English. The city before these motions was called simply Antep, became "gazi" (which in Turkish means "veteran") through the merits acquired. Curious that on an explanatory panel is indicated as the main causes of the decline of the Ottoman Empire: "economic problems due to the excessive military spending, excessive population growth, the inability to keep pace with the times and poor school grades"; I wonder if anyone in Ankara has ever read ...

Where to stay in Gaziantep

In Gaziantep you can wander the narrow-laned old town, with its old stone houses, just steps from your hotel. Because many of the old houses and their large interior courtyards have survived for decades, they now house museums, cafes, hotels, and inns. Surrounding the Old Town is a collection of moderately priced three- and four-star hotels. The city is well known for its food culture, restaurants, baklava bakeries, and bustling bazaars, so you'll want to stay close to the downtown core to experience that atmosphere. If budget is concern, look to the few guesthouses and hostels in the city, although they are a little removed from the central area.
