- You will feel the city’s historic texture as you tour Sinop Castle, which is thought to have been built in the 8th century by colonists from Miletus and completely covers the northern portion of the peninsula.
- The Archaeological Museum, which opened in 1921, is home to many well-preserved artifacts. Visit this small but jam-packed museum in the heart of the city and get an idea about Sinop’s past.
- Famous for its tasty cuisine, you can try dishes like nokul (meat pie), pilaki (fish stew), kaşık çıkartması (mamalika), ıslama and corn soup at local restaurants scattered around Sinop.
- Be sure to pay a visit to Erfelek Tatlıca Falls, a series of 28 cascades one behind the other, just 20 kilometers from the city center.
- Make a stop as well at the Historic Sinop Prison, which closed in 1999 and was converted into a museum used now as a set for cinema and TV productions as well as a venue for cultural events.
