Covered Market

The covered market was built in the 15th century by Mehmet I and today it is still the main shopping area for the town centre. There are different areas depending on what you need to buy, this street is full of jewellery shops and also currency exchange.

At the end of the corridor you can see the Turkish flags hanging from the ceiling, and (very small) between the two flags, a portrait of Atatürk, the founder of the modern Turkish republic.
