Western Karadeniz

Extending for about 500 km along the Turkish Black Sea coast, Western Karadeniz (Turkish: Batı Karadeniz) is a region of remote and rugged shores backed by lush and hazy mountains, with a layer of a century-old industrial and mining heritage inbetween. The main drawcards, though, are the old towns dotting the region from one end to the other, both on the coast and inland, ranging from run-down and modest to the perfectly renovated and up and ready for tourism, and the pristine, scenic mountain lakes.
