Beypazari is a traditional Turkish village in central Anatolia known for its carrots and silversmiths. The food is outstanding and there is a quaint endearing feel about the place. The local museum revealed some unexpected gems.

We traveled to Beypazari as a day trip from Ankara and used public transport. The city is located 100 km from the capital. You need to go by bus to the small otogar Etlik Garaji. There you need to take a bus to Beypazari, whuch after 1.5 hours will bring you to the town. I'd reccomend to enquire about the bus back to Ankara upon arrival and may be even to biy a ticket beforehand. The town is very nice and picturesque, go to the hill with the flag to get a stunning panoramic view (you can't go exactly to the flag, since it is closed, but you can get a nice picture just standing nearby). Also try local cafes, they are really good.

We heard about the time you decided to visit. In our country we have smaller cities that have festivals related to vegetables or fruit. We found it interesting the dist featured carrots. We also drank the mineral Waters that are bottled here. The shopkeepers were pleasant. There are three museums. It was not crowded in the morning but as the day went on it became very crowded. Parking can be at a premium later in the day. There is a nice park with a playground.

Beypazarı among other things, was an interesting Ottoman silver mining town.
Now, situated a little over 1.5 hours minibus drive from Ankara city, dependant on the stops), the local town managers have continued an authentic restoration of many houses, buildings & central town shops, to the point that it's the setting of some timely movie film sets.
Situated in a naturally twisted & uplifted valley formation, a walk around the outer village finds natural rock walls & scenic lookouts, while a stream runs through it.
It is visited by tourists for its quaint streets, silver & jewellery markets, sundried foods, biscuits, sweets & of course çay & kahve evi.
Beypazari is also the source of a mineral water supplier by the same name.
Not forgetting another claim to fame...The Havuç. The carrot grows well in the enviroment & is proudly displayed mid-town in giant form.
A nice day trip from Ankara

Before we decided to stop at Beypazari on our way to Goynuk, we never planned to spend an entire afternoon. The old market is so lively, with many shops. Food is amazing, you must try the sweet.There are couple museums and they are all walking distance. You need to park at the entrance, no parking available in the market area and most streets are closed for traffic. The Sunday market was fun.

We did a day trip from Ankara, a pleasant hours drive west through hills to this pretty rural town. We visited the weekend of the annual June festival of Handicrafts, Historical Houses and Carrots. 60% of Turkey's carrots come from this area and thus the big Carrot dominates the top of the town square. The atmosphere was lively, lots of stalls in the town square, camels rides and a jovial crowd. Once away from the square we wandered the cobblestone streets lines with classic white Ottoman period houses, and shops selling the local silverware, fruit, nuts, local mineral water , carrot juice and ice cream.Museums displaying the towns rich history are worth a visit. Look for a cafe with an upstairs or sidewalk terrace as we did to enjoy a piece of Beypazari's famous 80 layer baklava washed down with a Turkish coffee. We packed a mezzo picnic and headed out to the gorge on the outskirts of town to sit in the cool on the banks of the river and admire the surrounding rock formations . Beypazari is well worth a day trip and even an overnight stay. Go in June and enjoy the annual festival as we did.

We really enjoyed walking the narrow cobbled streets and checking out all the little shops. Locals were very friendly and helpful and we tried and bought a few new things. Then down the main street, past the carrot sculpture, and there are some more modern shops, including some very fine jewellery. Carry on to Ataturk Park for a sit down and our almost 4 year old son enjoyed playing on the pirate ship with all its slides. Everyone we spoke to / met was lovely. Town is charming. We didn't visit museum or anything - going back to do that!
