Snow in Kartepe
Kartepe will be a great escape point for those who want to get away from the vibe of the city and get cool and fresh air by touching snowy land. There are also alternative facilities for those who want to ski or snowboard.
Sunset at Kerpe
Kerpe, a small coastal town on the Black Sea coast, welcomes you with its deep blue sea, pine forests, and perfect sunset view. The light and the scenery filtering among the rocks are worth seeing.
Summer Spa (Yazlık Ilıcası), known as a health healing center from the Byzantine period, is good for those who have a problem with their skin or eyes, as well as those with rheumatism, stomach ailments, and chronic respiratory problems thanks to its healing water and the minerals it contains.
Keltepe Çiğdem, also known as "Crocus keltepensis" in the literature, is an endemic plant species found in the Kartepe district of Kocaeli. After the snow melts in spring, a natural studio is created for photographers with the appearance of Keltepe Çiğdem, which blooms in purple, white, and orange tones.
