Safranbolu (Greek: Σαφράμπολις, Saframpolis) is a town and district of Karabük Province in the Black Sea region of Turkey. It is about 9 km north of the city of Karabük, 200 kilometres (120 mi) north of Ankara and about 100 km south of the Black Sea coast. The town's historic names in Greek were Theodoroupolis (Θεοδωρούπολις, i.e. city of Theodorus or female Theodora) and later Saframpolis (Σαφράμπολις). Its former names in Turkish were Zalifre and Taraklıborlu. It was part of Kastamonu Province until 1923 and Zonguldak Province between 1923 and 1995.

Very picturesque with a good number of other attractions nearby. While it is certainly touristic nearly all the the tourists are Turkish themselves (according to some local shopkeepers). This is also the home to lokum, or Turkish delight, and there are amazing variations here that I've never seen anywhere else. The architecture is also extremely appealing with a stone kervansaray surrounded by stone and wood houses in a small valley with a ravine running through the middle of it.

If you enjoy taking walks in the nature and don't mind climbing a few steps you should definitely walk through this beautiful canyon. It'll make you feel like you're in a Wild West movie. The natural Waterfalls, trees and flowers are just beautiful. You can have a picnic there or enjoy a snack at the restaurant inside the canyon. We spend several hours there just enjoying this wonderful place.

If you are staying in one of the Konak hotels, this house will look very familiar. The only difference will be the tableaux and the accompanying descriptions (in English fortunately). This will give you an idea on how life was lived during Ottoman times and an appreciation of the social history of Safranbolu. It is not vast, so only put aside about 20 or 30 minutes for this visit. Nice garden café attached or pop next door to the Taşev for a drink.
By the way the mannequins are very amusing and a little weird.

This is not a typical 'village', which at least in Turkey, usually means very rustic and populated by uneducated people. The people living here are the original inhabitants or at least their descendants. They have renovated the buildings similar to those you see in Safranbolu. However, the tour of one house in the village was much more informative than any other tour I've had of these houses. We learned so much about the architecture and decoration of the house.
Really friendly people here and wonderful food at the cafe--don't miss it.

Safranbolu is the rich city in its history.. Famous with leather products.. Today you will see none of the leather products in there but old ottoman architecture villas lying down there.. Hıdırlık is the one of the best views for Safranbolu..
Just a warning.. Safranbolu all surrorunded with the stone even in wehicleor pedestirian walk paths.. Rather to use spoty shoes..

I'm not good with heights at all but because the glass was not see through I thought I'd give it a go and made it to the far side. However if there are more than a few people on the glass at the same time it bounces up & down which is not godd if you of a nervous disposition!

Love this museum type of house. it's full of history and the old lady showed us around with great enthusiasm and kindness. it's fun to go through each room and see how the people lived their lives a while ago. definitely worth a visit. much better than visiting a regular museum because this is real living history. if you ever come to visit the house, be sure to take a while to walk around the area too. it's such a charming and lovely village. much smaller than Safranbolu, but just as nice to visit.
