Old name: Parthenios

Market day: Tuesday

The small inland town of Bartin is not the sort of place many people think of visiting. Instead it usually serves as a hopping off point for getting up to Amasra on the Black Sea coast. If you do have a spare few hours though it's worth taking a stroll round town to admire some fine newly restored Ottoman wooden houses. 

Visit on market day in the summer and you may have the pleasure of seeing women from local villages who come into town especially to sell their strawberries.

Other minor attractions include a fine şadırvan (ablutions fountain), a stone-built belediye building and a leafy han with a great tea garden.

The toen stands on the Bartin Çayı, once the River Parthenios that marked the boundary between the provinces of Bithynia and Paphlagonia.
