Erzurum Turkey

Erzurum - TurkeyIn Erzurum there are several points of interest. The Citadel of Erzurum is located on the top of the hill in the city center and visitors can explore the grounds, the citadel masjid or climb up the minaret/clock tower and experience an exceptional view of the city as well as the surrounding mountains. The Çifte Minareli Medrese and the Three Tombs (Turkish: Üç Kümbetler) also attract a large number of visitors every year. Six kilometers to the south of Erzurum is an important skiing center on the Palandöken Mountain range. At Palandöken Ski Resort there are several ski runs with the south ski run being 8 kilometers in length, while the north ski run is more suited for advanced skiers. The summit of Mt. Palandöken, which is called Büyük Ejder (English: Great Dragon), lies at an altitude of 3188 meters and can be accessed via the chairlift which rises to an elevation of 3100 meters. Palandöken Ski Resort attracts a large number of skiers every year due to the abundance of powder-skiing conditions. Other places of interest are Dogubeyazit, Kars, Sarıkamış, Van, and Iran which are nearby destinations to the east of Erzurum. Divrigi is a UNESCO World Heritage site to the west with two daily trains departing from Erzurum.

The Erzurum Airport, only 10 kilometers from the city, offers daily flights from Istanbul operated by Onur Air, Turkish Airlines, and Pegasus Airlines. There are also direct flights from Izmir, Ankara, and Antalya as well as flights from Russia and the Ukraine during the winter. Erzurum Airport is also used by the Turkish Air Force and has the second longest runway in Turkey. Daily train service from Istanbul called the Doğu Express departs there from Haydarpaşa station at 8:35 every morning. Doğu Express makes stops in Ankara and other cities including Eskişehir, Kayseri, Sivas, and Erzincan. There is also another daily train from Ankara called the Erzurum Express which many say to be more comfortable than the Doğu Express. Both trains travel to Kars which is further east near the Armenian and Georgian borders. See the Turkish Republic State Railways website for schedules and fares. For bus transportation most bus companies stop at the Erzurum Bus Station (Turkish: Otogar) located about 1 kilometer away from the main city center within walking distance or by public bus to and from the Otogar. For traveling out and around the city the public buses or taxis are quite sufficient.
