Excursion Itinerary: Edirne - Border With Europe

EDIRNE FROM ISTANBUL
EDIRNE FROM ISTANBUL

Early in the morning, we will pick you up from your accommodation in Istanbul and travel to Edirne, also known as Adrianople in Greek, located in North West Turkey, in the Thrace region and close to the Greek and Bulgarian borders. Your first visit will be at the Treaty of Lausane Monument and Museum, which is entirely dedicated to the treaty, which, in 1923 and after World War I, marked the end of the Ottoman Empire. 

You will visit the Greek-Turkish border and the famous Karaagac railway station, which was the former railway station in Edirne located 4km south-west of the city.  It was the Orient Express train station, today converted into the Faculty of Fine Arts of Trakya University. You will visit the ruins of the colossal Ottoman Palace of Edirne and will then sit down to lunch overlooking the Meric River and its famous bridge.

After lunch, you will visit the Bezayit Health Museum before stopping at the Selimiye Mosque, built in 1569 by Sinan, perhaps the most famous architect of the Ottoman Empire. It was considered by Sinan to be his masterpiece and is one of the highest achievements of Islamic architecture. Finally, you will visit the Bazaar Alipasa, an impressive covered market, where you will have time to shop and haggle.

After this full day in the city of Edirne, you will return to Istanbul and be dropped off at your accommodation.

Greca Tip: In Ali Pasha Bazaar you will find meyve sabunu, the fruit-shaped soaps unique to Edirne.  You do not actually wash with these but you leave them out in a room as a decorative piece.  Their fruity smells will have your house smelling fresh in no time.
