    Big ship in the Bosphorus - picture from the hill

    One of the most beautiful things to do here on Anadolukavagi is to climb up the hill to see the spectacular view of the Bosphorus.

    You can see the castle's ruins up the hill or just enjoy the view.

    While you are relaxing on the boat you can miss the big ruins of the castle on top of the hill in Anadolukavagi.

    This is very impressive castle that used to watch over the Bosphorus.

    The castle's ruins

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On top of the hill in Anadolukavagi you will find ruins of an old castle that used to watch the Bosphorus.
    The climb to the top can be difficult but it is a very beautiful place and worth the effort.

    View from castle

    View from castle

    This is a picture from the castle looking north at the Bosphorus joining the Black Sea. This was an adventageous vantage point as any vessel wanting to go to Istanbul or beyond to the Mediterranean Sea had to pass through this narrow strait. Clearly visible from the castle.

    This was a nice place. Relaxing. Bring a lunch (or buy one in town and bring it up.)

    The walk to the castle

    by morgr Written Dec 29, 2004
    Cow.

    When you disembark, and after you have seen the town a little, continue strait on through town and up the hill behind it. Don't worry, as the saying goes (well, it's a french saying anyways, dunno if it's used in english) 'all roads lead to Rome'. This also applies here. We walked up some road that cut off into a cemetary then through someones backyard, but eventually dropped us onto the main cobble stoned road going up.

    The walk is easy, unless you encounter an angry cow intent on making it difficult. The one we met seemed content licking the road and didn't even lift his head to look at us.

    Genoese Castle

    by morgr Updated Dec 29, 2004
    Castle ruins

    It is probably the first thing you will notice upon your first glimpse of Anadolu Kavagi from the ferry boat, perched atop the hill with its two crumbling towers.

    It is, according to my ever useful guidebook, Byzantine in origine. The cross logo is proof of this. However it was also ruled for a time by the Genoese.

    Either way, bring a lunch and enjoy the view!

    narrow street's resident

    Anadolukavagi has some small and narrow streets while you are going up the hill to the old castle's ruins and it is very romantic and beautiful to walk on those streets.

    The Castle

    The castle

    Outside the town, as you go up the hill, you can visit the ruins of one of the last castles of the Bosphorus. There's not much left, but the view from the top is wonderful.

    Narrow streets and wooden houses

    A lovely street

    In the 3 hours that the boat stops here, you have time enough for lunch and to take a walk around. As you go up the hill, you will find empty narrow streets with classical ottoman houses.
