Izmır Alsancak

Alsancak is one of the most famous regions in Izmir and has the richest social and cultural activity options. At sunset, people can sit on the grass along Kordon, and Kibris Sehitleri Street, which connects Muzaffer Izgu and Gazi Kadinlar streets, is packed with pubs, cafes, nightclubs, and bars. Furthermore, the bakeries on the street are known for their local flavor, "Boyoz," a type of local patties or doughnuts, with which you can have breakfast like a native.


Sevgi Yolu (love street), a traffic-free street at the rear, covered with palm trees on both sides, is a good option for book, second-hand book, and jewelry shopping. The Passport Ferry Terminal is a meeting point and a ferry transportation center to other attraction sites such as Karsiyaka, Bostanli, Goztepe, Bayrakli, and Alsancak Port. It was built by the French as a customhouse in 1886. There are museums to visit, including the TCDD (Railway Museum), Ataturk House, the Museum of Joy and Caricature, and the Necdet Alpar Mask Museum. Alsancak Station, which has a late Ottoman Perion architecture-featured building that can be visited as it was the railway line’s starting point in Anatolia, has an amazing interior design. Alsancak has a reputation for its pies, with pineapple almond cakes and ice cream being the most well-known.
