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 around

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

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.


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


Grilled fish at one of the small restaurants.


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.


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.

  • 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.  edit

Get out

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