On my previous post I took you to a small tour of my hometown Eskisehir and mentioned how it has transformed from an old and forgetten city to one of the most modern ones in Turkey thanks to a vision of a single man. One of the biggest project he undertook was to restore the old parts of the town.The neighbourhood which is called Odunpazari was full of shabby and neglected houses during my childhood.However with a big restoration project most of the houses that are dated to the Ottoman period started to have a wonderful new life. Project is still continuing and there are still houses waiting for their new life.
And now let me take you to a small tour into the streets of this beautiful neighbourhood.
Some houses are bigger than the others and here is an interior view of a one which is used as a glass museum right now.
Eskişehir is also famous with its meerschaum and they did not forget the artists who created beautiful items especially pipes from meerschaum. There is a special market for them in this neighbourhood.
