Visit the citadel
Dating back to the 10th century, the Kayseri Citadel is steeped in history. Composed of both an exterior and interior rampart, it previously served as a market and a place to eat a meal. The large bazaar is found in the inner courtyard, and in the Ottoman era, the centre was reserved for precious goods.

Ski at Mount Erciyes

Stroll through Hunat Hatun Complex and Vezir Han
The Hunat Hatun was the first complex to be built by the Seljuq between 1228 and 1238. Located within the town of Kayseri, the complex includes a mosque, a medersa, a mausoleum, a public bath and a market. The Vezir Han is a caravanserai (a roadside inn) which was intended to house merchants, and today is a shop for wool and cotton traders.
Try the Pastirma!
The Kayseri Pastrami is a very famous deli meat in Turkey. It is made from pressed beef covered with «çemen», a spicy blend of cumin, fenugreek, garlic, salt and paprika. It is then dried and cut into very thin slices. Pastirma is a delicacy to be relished on special occasions.
