Saat Kulesi (Clock Tower), Izmir

(4.3/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
View the Ottoman-style tower that has come to represent the city at Saat Kulesi (Clock Tower). Built in 1901 to mark the 25th anniversary of Abdülhamid II's reign, the 25 m (85 ft) high tower was then gifted to the city by the German Emperor, Wilhelm II. Notice the Moorish themes of the iron-and-lead structure, and the four fountains that are aligned around the base. The town's prominent landmark rises from one of the main pedestrian spaces, Konak Square, so check out the surrounding shops or stop to feed the pigeons here.

  • Izmir is a history itself from Karaburun to the bag. You know, there is a phrase "Kinsey" and that model and is a symbol of İzmir clock tower. Years of experience by challenging the grandeur, but they are fans of the standing stands denizile the clock tower fills roads. Nevertheless gave up looking out to sea, loving the sea.. The meeting point for the most amorous or an ornamental square photo is unchanging from outside of İzmir. Like I said, if you haven't seen it, Kinsey is missing something in your life to come ...

  • It's a very nice building that gets lit up at night, which makes it even more picturesque. It is in the middle of a big open square, near the sea side.
  • Landmark of the city. A must. Some historic parts of the clock has been stolen during the post coup attempt protests. A pity.
  • Nice clock tower 25 meters high, in Konak square. One of the last structures of the Ottoman empire, since the beginning of the 20th century. Relaxing atmosphere, go for a walk. Recommended._
  • It's one of the most important historical pieces of the Izmir
  • One of the most beautiful city in Turkey. I really like this place. And I advise you to visit :)
