• Ottoman Heritage


The inter-disciplinary symposium is scheduled to take place in Kastamonu.
The city, near the black Sea, is believed to have been founded in the 18th century BC. The town was known as Timonion during the Roman period. In 10th century the name was changed to Kastra Komnenon after the Byzantian emperor I. Komnenos. Later it was shortened to Kastamone, and later to Kastamoni and Kastamonu.

Kastamonu, is famous for its historic homes.  Some of these traditional wooden houses are more than 400 years old. The houses of Kastamonu and nearby Safranbolu are prime examples of homes that reflect the traditional Turkish architecture and influences from the late Ottoman era. The cobblestone streets and wooden home are reminders of the elegance of the past.
