Excursions to the Far East and Black Sea Coast Sights

Taşköprü

Updated 11/25/2013

Fodor's Review

The area between the castle and the Apostles Church was the heart of Kars prior to its Russian occupation, but only a few early constructions survive. The most notable is the Taşköprü, also known as "the Stone Bridge," of Seljuk origin, dating from the 1400s and built of volcanic rock, On either side of the bridge are several largely abandoned hammams and timber and stone houses; the 300-year-old home of famed poet Nemik Kemal has been restored and is now a cultural

center. The rest of area is somewhat neglected, though local authorities occasionally attempt to rejuvenate the area.
