Amasra Castle; A living Byzantine castle

Amasra castle bridge

Some of the historical monuments are so lucky that maybe themselves can’t believe in it. Amasra Castle which was constructed on Western Black Sea is one of them. This castle was built as two parts so a bridge was added to these ends. Even today, it is one of the most important attracting sight seeing places of the region.

It was originally built in Byzantine period. It was the gate of Black Sea region in East Roman Empire period. Also this region was very important. Then Genoese domination took over the region and they reconstructed the castle many times. Many items from both civilization were left.

Amasra museum and castle are important sight seeing places of the city. It is a cute Black Sea region settlement. On the other hand, it has a great historical background. Boat tours are also very enjoyable at the city.

Visit Turkey and feel happy…
