Unlike many other Anatolian towns, Kastamonu, Turkey, has retained not only its old Ottoman mosques and medreses but also many of its fine old wooden houses.

It is only 150 mi/240 km north of Ankara and is slowly being discovered as a destination for overnight visitors. In the nearby village of Kasaba, you can visit one of Turkey's finest surviving wooden mosques.

Pinarbasi, 60mi/97km northwest of Kastamonu, is the main base for exploring the waterfalls, caves, canyons and forests of Kure Daglari National Park.
