15 km from Bartin on the Black Sea coast is a small historical town off the beaten track, called Amasra.

Known for :
– Fish restaurants and salad
– Amasra Castle built during the Roman period by the Byzantines
– Two islands: Büyük ada (Great Island) and Tavşan adası (Rabbit Island)

In the square there is a statue honoring Amasra born, Turkish rock star Barış Akarsu who passed away at 28 years old.

We went at night to enjoy the sunset, so photos don’t clearly show Amasra. Umut’s uncle showed me this video to show me Amasra during the sunlight.
