Why Sinop?

Sinop was established as a fortress on the headland of Boztepe which is connected in east-direction to İnceburun, the most northern edge of Turkey, and has developed eastwards throughout the history. It has been home to many civilizations and still accommodates some historical remnants.

The Greek Goddess Sinope is thought to be an eponym of the city Sinop which enthrals people with her sea, nature and virgin beaches. Sinope is abducted to the city of Sinop by Zeus, who, in his passion, swore to fulfil her dearest wish. Sinope declares she wishes to remain a virgin. That’s why it is believed that Sinop has been able to keep its beauty and nature until today.

The inner harbour situated on the south of the peninsula became a harbour for the sailors in the rough weathers thanks to its geographical position. Due to the difficulty of transportation, maritime and port activities remained undeveloped and local. Primary source of income is fishing in the Black Sea region, and more than half of the fish are caught around Sinop peninsula.

Respectively, Romans, Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans established their dominance in Sinop. The most significant development occurred during the Seljuk era and the city architecturally developed. The smell of the historic buildings is still felt today.

With her untouched nature, clean sea, virgin beaches and distinguished people, Sinop is an undiscovered treasure waiting for her visitors.
