"ANADOLU KAVAGI - YOROS CASTLE" Daytrip - Anadolu Kavagi Tip by balhannah
Daytrip - Anadolu Kavagi, Istanbul: 17 reviews and 33 photos
Yoros Castle is located in Anadolu Kavagi on the hill above the town.
It's here where the Bosphorus and the Black Sea meet, and it is one of the narrowest stretches of the Bosphorus. Rumeli Kavagai is a fortress on the other side. Years ago, a massive chain could be extended across the Bosphorus between these two points, cutting off the straits to attacking warships. Because of this, it is a very important area for the Turkish defence, so most of the area surrounding the Castle ruins are out of bounds.
To reach it you have to climb quite a steep hill, but its worth it, the views are fantastic. There isn't much left of the Castle!
Its nice to sit on the walls and watch all the Ships, there is a constant stream! A pretty spot!
