Kayakoy Things to Do: 7 reviews and 11 photos

Once upon a time this town had 25,000 inhabitants . In 1922 there was a recriprocal agreement between Turkey and Greece to exchange people: the Greek went back but the Turks didn't come here and hence the Greek town of Kayakoy became abandoned. Several earthquakes later, notably the one in 1957, the town took on its ghost like appearance with its roofless buildings and crumbling walls and stones removed for other buildings. Climb to the top by a chapel and enjoy this view over the town.
