Beau­ti­ful hues of green and blue make Sinop a daz­zling at­trac­tion

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Front Page -

SİNOP has been hailed as the hap­pi­est city in Turkey and from now on, it will be ap­pre­ci­ated for its nat­u­ral beauty as well. For the last cou­ple of years, the city has been host­ing mil­lions of tourists an­nu­ally and its pris­tine na­ture con­tin­ues to draw more and more peo­ple ev­ery year.

Sinop has come to the front with its na­ture tourism, es­pe­cially in sum­mer months with its sea, beaches and its his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural riches. It is among the prom­i­nent cities of the Black Sea re­gion with its forests, bays and streams.

Er­felek Tatlıca Waterfalls and the Ham­si­los Nat­u­ral Park at­tract the most tourists thanks to their peace­ful and beau­ti­ful na­ture.

Re­gional Di­rec­tor of Na­ture Con­ser­va­tion and Na­tional Parks Hasan Başy­iğit said that the nat­u­ral parks con­trib­uted to the re­gion af­ter new in­vest­ments that were made by the min­istry.

“The nat­u­ral parks in Sinop hosted 367,000 vis­i­tors in the first eight months of this year. Last year, this num­ber was 202,000 in the whole year. With the new in­vest­ments, the in­ter­est in the na­ture park has con­tin­ued to in­crease ev­ery year. Sinop is lucky in this as­pect since it has five reg­is­tered nat­u­ral parks. Two of them are highly vis­ited. Our ar­range­ments works and in­vest­ments in the other three parks con­tinue,” Başy­iğit added.

Ex­plain­ing there are five cities af­fil­i­ated to their di- rec­torate, he con­tin­ued, “Among these five cities, the most-vis­ited nat­u­ral parks are in Sinop. These are the Er­felek Tatlıca Waterfalls and the Ham­si­los Nat­u­ral Park. They are the prom­i­nent at­trac­tion cen­ters of the re­gion.”
