    This old graveyard was just behind the busstop. The graves that look like they have "heads" are male, no "head" is female.

  • Dilapidated or romantique?

    Set on the lower slopes of Uludað, the cobbled streets are full of dilapidated buildings, leaning brokenly into each other. Is this romantic or just in a bad state of repair?

  • Interesting living arrangements

    The ground and first floors of the houses harbour the storerooms, stables and inner courtyards; upstairs, the living quarters present bay or lattice windows and wide tiled eaves overhanging the street. Many of the existing original double-front doors are studded with large-headed nails and wrought-iron strips

    Following the alleys into the village, you'll find that the roads are only wide enough for pedestrians and pack animals – some are so narrow that two people cannot pass each other – and there is a myriad of fascinating alleyways, dead-ends and cobbled squares to explore

    There is no specific shop there. there are small tables in front of the houses or in their garden to sell goods. You can have chance to chat with friendly local people when you are buying goods.

    What to buy: Homemade jams are very popular in Cumalikizik. The most popular fruit is raspberry and also mulberry, orange and other fruits are picking and using for making delicious jams. Also you can try natural raspberry juice. Another homemade thing is a sort of pasta called "erishte". you can buy it and cook it whenever u want. I liked all of those...

    What to pay: cheap very cheap...
