Izmir saat kulesi

Izmir saat kulesi

view map

Built in 1901 this Saat Kulesi or clock tower has become the landmark of Izmir. The city might have had others, but in 1922 a fire destroyed, during the Greek-Turkish war, most of the old city. A terrible loss. The clock tower is at Konak, which can be considered the heart of the city. The sea is at two hundred meters, but as you can read in a comment below, it used to be at the seaside in the twenties. The shopping area of the bazar a similar distance to the other side.

Dear Mr.Dick,
Thanks for this excellent work. your site is really great and so valuable.
And I wanted to add one detail, may be you didn'd know. In the beginning of 20th century, this clocktower was just on the shore. Now it is 200-300 meters away from see.
If you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact. Thanks again.

Dear Dick,
You have changed our mind about Dutch. I suppose you are a Turkiye and Turkish people lover. Thank you for your big job. "Ellerine saglik" in Turkish.
