Located in the west-northern shore of Turkey, Zonguldak has a pristine natural beauty. What makes the city unique though, is its long-standing industrial history. The city has developed around coal mines that have been operational since 1829, and the mines and relevant structures are still the city’s most defining characteristics.
In order to fulfill the city’s tourism potential, Kivi Stratejik Planlama has been working on a regional tourism master plan. We have prepared a series of maps in order to understand the current status. Maps include Zonguldak and two of its important neighbours, Bartın and Karabük. See some below.
