We spent a few hours in Göynük, a small town that preserves Ottoman architecture and is built on the steep hillsides of a river valley.
Many of the houses can only be reached by foot, via precipitous pathways that must be especially challenging in winter.
Most houses have gardens, even if they’re just some soil in an empty tin or yogurt pail:
and some are more elaborate:
It’s possible to see construction details in houses that await renovation
There’s lots more to be said, of course, and quite a few more Göynük images, but I think I’ll get this one launched…
