"The remains of the castle..." Top 5 Page for this destination Erzurum Things to Do Tip by maykal

Erzurum Things to Do: 30 reviews and 56 photos


The remains of the castle should be your first port of call, just to get a good overview of the city...theoretically, there is an entry charge payable at the ticket booth, but when the ticket man goes off for lunch, he doesn't seem too careful about locking up! Mind you, he wasn't too bothered when he came back to find the place 'full of tourists' (all twelve...all Turkish except me), and didn't bother to ask for any money...he probably missed out on the only business to come his way all day, but just laughed it all off with a glass of tea!
