Description

Eskisehir is a city in northwestern Turkey and the capital of the Eskişehir Province. The urban population of the city is 717,135 with a metropolitan population of 826,135. The city is located on the banks of the Porsuk River, 792 m above sea level, where it overlooks the fertile Phrygian Valley. In the nearby hills one can find hot springs. The city is 233km to the west of Ankara, 330km to the southeast of Istanbul and 78km to the northeast of Kütahya. Known as a university town, both Eskişehir Osmangazi University and Anadolu University are based in Eskişehir. The province covers an area of 2678km2.HistoryThe name Eskişehir literally means “Old City” in Turkish; indeed, the city was founded by the Phrygians in at least 1000 BC, although it has been estimated to be older than 4000 years old. Many Phrygian artifacts and sculptures can still be found in the city’s archeological museum. There is also a museum of meerschaum stone, whose production remains still notable, used to make high quality meerschaum pipes. In the fourth century AD the city moved about ten km northeast, from Karacahisar to Şehirhöyük.

What to Expect :

Eskişehir, 324 km (201 miles) southeast of Istanbul, and 233 km (145 miles) west of Ankara (map), is an important industrial and transport center in western Turkey, but its claim to fame is meerschaum.
The soft white stone which mineralogists call sepiolite(hydrous magnesium silicate, called lületasi in Turkish) is mined in nearby villages and carved into beads, necklaces, earrings and especially tobacco pipes.
Though its name means “Old City,” what you’ll see of present-day Eskişehir (ess-KEE-sheh-heer, alt. 730 meters/2400 feet, pop. 800,000) is mostly modern, though the Roman city of Dorylaeum was located here or nearby
