    Or in English – Blue dream  There is a nice swimming pool and the place is very suitable for day time and night time also. In the evenings they have live Turkish music. Also wedding parties are taking there.

    This is an area in the closest mountain Aytepe. Ii is only 20 km far from the city but you can already escape from the hot weather. There are many places where you can have a picnic. We stopped at a restaurant where I ate very delicious kavarma( meat with tomatoes prepared in an earthen dish ). Later they served us tea in the nearest park where we could chill on a special swing called “hamak”.

    Kerpa is a beach at the Black Sea, only 50 km far from Izmit. In Izmit there is no beach at the Marmara Sea so local people go there if they wanna feel the sand and the sea. It is nice place but very crowded. The water is warm and clean.

    Sekapark is the biggest park probably in Izmit. Unfortunately we had time to visit it only in the nights but it was still beautiful. It is located along the Marmara Sea, it’s very quiet and cool in the evenings. Some cafes are working 24 hours and it’s always nice to have a cup of Turkish tea in a good company.

    A big Luna Park in Izmit with different attractions. The entrance is 0.50 TRL and then you pay every attraction separately. Around the area there are lots of restaurants with live local music and a big lake which makes it wonderful place for chilling out and resting.

    This is the main street in Izmit with lots of shops, cafes, and restaurants. In the middle of the street there is a beautiful alley with flowers and plants where most of the people walk. It is very crowded but there you can feel Izmit.

    Taking the ferry for a trip

    I think there are no touristic boats (I’m not sure) but we took a ferry as a public transport. The journey was around 2.5 hours and cost 10 TLR. We stopped at few ports and we were back at the first one. I had wonderful time looking at Izmit and nearby villages from the sea.
