Re: A journey to Kars

Re: A journey to Kars

Hi all back again. Kars itself was a typical Turkish town in a lot of ways not as pretty as the towns we had visited, though it did have some really interesting places to visit. There are a number of *Bastions* Russian built forts, one has a great museum inside pics below.

Re: A journey to Kars

We also walked up to Kars castle this sits overlooking the town and can be seen from virtually any where in the town, a word of warning this is one steep climb if you are not very fit or in a wheelchair etc forget it, though we were told afterwards there is another way round the back that is much easier and you could take a taxi that way to the top!!! Oh how we laughed. Pictures from the castle below

The thing is with the train there is only one running during the day and I believe only three running per week, Mon, Wed, Fri, this is the tourist train (the one all with sleeping cars) there ia also the Express train which is quicker but does not do the stopovers.

Re: A journey to Kars

Now the main purpose of this trip was not Kars itself (which was good) but to visit the abandoned city of Ani on the Armiinian border, Ani is a world heritage site and a MUST SEE I dont think I have ever seen anything like it. One recommendation we used an official guide which we booked before we left Didim. Celil Ersozoglu 0532 226 39 66 this guy is a bloody revelation his knowledge of Kars and Ani is unbelievable. He was going to pick us up from the airport but the train was delayed so we told him not to bother and we took taxis but he was willing to come out in the early hours of the morning to pick us up. He took us to cheese shops, if you are into cheese Kars is the place for you, it is also renowned for its honey so a few jars of that was popped in the cases as well as the half hundred weight of cheese. He took us all around Ani, came out for a meal with us and even took us back to the airport. We would not have learnt much at all without him, in my humble opinion he was worth every penny. Pictures of Ani below
