Atatürk Congress Building and Ethnography Museum

The Congress Building holds a particular importance in the history of the Republic of Turkey as it was the place where the civil resistance movement was initiated with the Congress of Sivas, in 1919. The structure served as high school until 1981 and then was renovated as a museum where the ground floor hosts Ethnography Museum and the first floor is spared for Atatürk Congress Museum where you can also see the study and resting rooms that belonged to Atatürk.  

Eğri Bridge

Built by Seljuks upon Kızılırmak River, Eğri Bridge is 180 meters long. It is slightly tilted towards the northern half and thus was called “Eğri” which means bent in Turkish.  The bridge was laying upon the Silk Road in ancient times.
