THE CITY OF SAINTS (EVLIYAS)

Kastamonu is known to be one of the culturally and naturally richest cities of Black Sea Region. The city is like an open-air museum with a 7.000 year-old history.

It used to be a city often used for accommodation purposes when the Silk Road was active. Thefore there are a lot of old inns in the city.

There are also a lot of tombs (known to be tombs of saints) in the city. They are so great in number that you don't need to look for one as you would come across one easily. That's why the city is also known as the city of saints.
