The most northerly city in Turkey, Sinop sits on the neck of a peninsula on the Black Sea. In the 7th century B.C. Sinop was a prosperous Greek colony, and throughout antiquity a citadel to the south and a fortified wall on the seaside protected the city. You can still see those defensives and the ruins of the Temple of Serapis. The 13th century Aladdin Mosque and the Byzantine period Balatlar Church in the city's Ada Quarter are also outstanding. Ancient coins, vases and jewelry are still being unearthed around Sinop, and many of them end up in the city's archaeological museum.


The area is known for the anchovies-and-rice dish, hamsi pilavi, and a vegetable bread called miroloto.
