Eskişehir has become one of the most popular cities of our country in recent years with its rich options for sightseeing. Eskişehir can be reached by high speed train or highway in important cities such as Bursa, Ankara and Istanbul. This is an important factor for the city’s nightlife.
1. Historic Odunpazarı Area
Odunpazari region is the first of our list of places to visit in Eskisehir. Odunpazarı is the oldest settlement in Eskişehir. With the successful tourism investments made in the region in recent years, it has reached a completely different face. There are many historical mansions, fountains and museums to visit in the region. And a lot of trades.
2. Odunpazarı Houses
The most striking part of the Odunpazari area is undoubtedly the Historical Odunpazari Houses. These buildings, which were shown among the oldest houses of the city until recently, are good examples of traditional Ottoman civil architecture. After the restoration works in the region recently, the houses gained a completely different face. Although most of the houses are still used for accommodation, some of the houses now serve as boutique hotels, cafes, restaurants, museums and souvenir shops. Obviously, this is one of the places that I enjoy visiting in Eskişehir. Strolling through historical houses takes you on a journey through time.
3. Porsuk Çayı ve Adalar Bölgesi
The longest tributary of the Sakarya River, Porsuk Stream passes through Eskişehir. As you can see on the map, Porsuk passes through many points of the city. The most famous of these is the region called “Islands tarafından by the locals. This map is located in the northern part. Parallel to Doctors Street. There are many cafes and restaurants around Porsuk Stream. Here you can eat Çibörek and come to breakfast in the morning. Gondola and boat tours organized in the spring and summer months, where the weather is nice, adds a special beauty to the region.

The zoo also has different species such as penguins, lemurs and the company. The Tropical Center, the Parrot House and the Japanese Garden are the highlights of the park. I think that ETİ Underwater World, which was opened a few years before the Zoo, is a boutique in its history. Today it serves as a part of the park. It can take at least 2 hours to visit the Zoo and the ETİ Underwater World together.
