Erzurum is situated at an altitude of 1850 m with bare hills around. The view over the city and the surrounding mountains is very nice from the clocktower inside the citadel. Other sights in Erzurum are Ulu Cami, Cifte Minareli Medrese and Yakutiye Medrese, now housing the Turkish - Islamic Art and Ethnography Museum.

    I have several ideas for my upcoming trip to Eastern Turkey, which starts in Trabzon. One is to roughly go Trabzon, Erzurum, Kars and then further on into Georgia. So your page gives me a good idea of this route, although the info is now more than 10 years old.

    Far East Turkey! Its a beautiful place. And your transportation tips are so nice to read, as usual, Malena! I have a plan to Anatolia, but may be not that far east.

    Nice tips on Erzurum. It doesn't seem a big city, though it's been in history.

    It looks like you had beautiful weather while in Erzurum! I like the countryside of eastern Turkey and was amazed by the beautiful architecture, dating so far back in time!
