One Afternoon at Kordon
“Let’s meet at Kordon”
When you’re at Kordon, one of the meeting points of the locals in İzmir, you can visit the Kıbrıs Şehitleri (Cyprus Martyrs’) Street, the most popular street in the city, to see the cafés, restaurants, bookstores, and shops. Then you can go to Kordonboyu, the view and the atmosphere of which will relax you.
After a long walk with a magnificent view of the Gulf, we recommend you to watch the sunset from this shore, which is amongst The Best 10 Places to Watch the Sunset in İzmir.
During your time in Kordon, it’s very likely that you will come across çiğdem (sunflower seeds), gevrek (bagel), and mussel vendors, as well as the sounds of street musicians.
If you stay late in Kordon, which is very vivid in spring and summer, you can visit one of many restaurants and cafes along the coast where you can taste Aegean flavors. Wouldn't you like to have dinner while watching the ferries cruising on the sparkles of the sea?
