For panoramic views of the city and harbor, venture up to Boztepe Park, located three kilometers from the city center. Locals come here for some keyif (the Turkish art of idle relaxation). Do as they do: Pull up a chair, order a Turkish tea and relax as the sun sets on another glorious day by the Black Sea. Prices can increase for tourists, so confirm the cost when ordering.
