Hafta Sonu Rotası: Eskişehir Gezi Rehberi - OGGUSTO

Eskişehir, a city that has pioneered many firsts in our country, with its Porsuk River reminiscent of Venice, its pristine streets, bustling at all hours.

The Porsuk River, which passes right through the heart of the city, divides Eskişehir in two. Once a major challenge for the city, recent urban development projects have turned it into one of the city's must-see attractions. In fact, you can even take a gondola ride along the Porsuk River. Sit on the benches or in the green areas along the riverbank and enjoy the city. With university students lounging around with books and gondolas floating by, you might even mistake yourself for being in a European city.

Leaving the Porsuk River behind and taking a city tour in Adalar and Doktorlar, you might feel like you've been living here for years. Eskişehir's charm will envelop you in a moment. You won't want to leave. The true value of Eskişehir is realized when you leave the city. You'll constantly find yourself longing for Eskişehir, as if you've been living there for years.

Where to Stay in Eskişehir

Senna City Hotel. A quality and decent hotel located right in the city center, above the river. It offers good value for money. Don't expect everything to be perfect, but it's close to perfection, clean, and has friendly staff. I recommend choosing rooms with river views. Click here for other Eskişehir Hotels.

Where to Eat in Eskişehir?

 Sempre Ristorante Italiano: A quality restaurant with a surprising garden located in the city center, in the Eti building. The filet mignon with cafe de paris sauce was amazing, although their pizzas didn't look as good as fresh pizzas (their presentation wasn't successful), they tasted quite good. They have a presentation problem because the meats are quite fancy. I also recommend Meze Restaurant for an evening; you'll love their fish appetizers. You must taste "çiğ börek," a traditional food of Eskişehir, which you can find in many places in the city center. My recommendation is Kırım Çi Börek Salonu. A place with delicious "çi börek" that tastes like a meat pie. Other recommendations include ESKİŞEHİR ÇİBÖREK EVİ and CAN ÇİBÖREK (near Abdülselam). Balaban kebab is also a must-try. Hüsmen on Abdülselam or Muttalip Street is recommended for Balaban kebab. Also, "met helvası" is very famous.

For those who love boza, Eskişehir's Boza is great. Our recommendation is Kara Kedi Bozacısı. And let's not forget about #pinoeskisehir, a unique burger place in Eskişehir. Don't forget about Kör Kamili! In Mazlumlar, you can taste the best milk desserts, Venice's delicious cakes and ice creams shouldn't be forgotten either!
