Daily Edirne Tour from Istanbul will offer you a wonderful tour from a different perspective.
We will pick you up from your hotel with our comfortable vehicles and set off for beautiful Edirne. When we arrive in Edirne, we will meet with our guide, and our day trip will officially start. If you wish, you can have a delicious breakfast in a beautiful place among the greenery near the Meric River or in the direction of Kapıkule, one step away from the city center, to gather energy for visiting this magnificent city.
First of all, in Edirne, which was the capital of the Ottoman Empire for 92 years, Sultan II. We will visit the Bayezid Complex (Darüşşifa, Health Museum). Here we can visit the mosque, which has the same name as the complex, as well as the soup kitchen, hospital, and madrasah sections. After leaving the museum, we will feed our souls with the unique musical melodies that will accompany us during our visit and the sound of the water flowing from the fountain. Our second stop will be the Hıdırlık Bastion, located on one of the highest hills of Edirne, used first in the Ottoman-Russian and then in the Balkan Wars, with its original restoration that will remain in your memory.
Afterward, we will visit Tunca Island, where the Historical Kırkpınar Oil Wrestling, Kakava, and Hıdrellez Festivals are held, which is located between the two branches of the Tunca River. We will set off for our next destination, the city center.
We will visit the Selimiye Mosque, a masterpiece of Mimar Sinan, in the city center. Our next stop will be the Old Mosque, famous for its epitaphs, known as Edirne's first monumental building. Another structure in the city center that we can admire is the Mosque with Three Balconies, also known as the Burgulu Mosque, which stands out with its different minarets. This mosque is one of the first examples of the architecture of the Ottoman Empire. After visiting the Sokullu Mehmet Pasha Bath and Macedonian Clock Tower, we will have free time for lunch and a shopping break.
Then, after meeting again at the place and time we have determined, we will go to Karaağaç for the last part of our trip. After visiting the Pazarkule Border Gate, one of our border gates to Greece, we will visit the Lausanne Peace Monument and the Historical Train Station with its magnificent architecture. This place will enchant you! After a short walk on Lausanne Street, we will arrive at the Meric River and the Historical Meric Bridge.
