Kutahya

 

Kutahya is one of the oldest Turkish cities, with many old Turkish traditions still being practiced today. It is home to important Ottoman architectural monuments, including a castle, mosques, medreses, baths, complexes, mausoleums, and mansions. One of the finest mosques is the 14th-century Ulu Mosque.

Kutahya Castle offers a wonderful, panoramic view of the old town on the western side of the city. The Kutahya Archeology Museum was a medrese in the 14th century that now displays ethnographia, Roman and Byzantine relics, and Iznik and Kutahya tiles from Ottoman times. Lajos Kossuth, the 19th-century Hungarian hero, lived with his family in here and their house used as a museum now where relics and documents related to Kossuth are exhibited in.

The kilns of Kutahya produced exquisite ceramics in the 16th and 17th centuries, a craft which lives on today. You can visit the workshops where skilled artisans produce tiles, plates and bowls renowned for their cobalt blue patterns on a milky white background.

Southwest of Kutahya, is the Roman town of Cavdarhisar (Aizanoi) where a theater, stadium and the Temple of Zeus remain. In the same direction, Murat Mountain offers camping facilities and hot springs amid delightful scenery.
