What is there to do in Mersin?
Mersin is one of the most crowded cities in Turkey, with a permanent population of just under two million people. Unsurprisingly, due to its close proximity to the sea, sea food restaurants are particularly prominent, serving delicious fish fresh from the waters. Whilst sampling the local cuisine, it is almost customary to try Raki, a traditional Turkish alcoholic drink, though it can be a shock to the taste buds on the first try.
Away from the restaurants, there are plenty of cultural buildings for those who have an active interest in the history of the region. The Ataturk Museum is a must-see whilst in the area; its prestige has prompted it to become one of the most popular tourist attractions in the entirety of Turkey. Alongside the Ataturk Museum, the Mersin Naval Museum is worthwhile visiting, and to embrace the beautiful greenery that the city has to offer, Mersin Culture Park is the ideal spot for enjoying a few hours in stunning surroundings.
How to get to Mersin Port?
There is a railway connection transporting passengers straight to the ferry terminals, creating a simple, convenient way to travel around Mersin. There are also road links to the harbour, so the port itself is very accessible for visitors.
