The special attraction in Safranbolu is its houses. In fact, it has been listed in the World Heritage sites of UNESCO because of these specialty houses. These structures represent old civilian architecture that was prevalent during the 18th and 19th century of the Turkish society. For example, the sizes of the houses depict the Turkish preference of joint families. It is also called the "House of five facades" because of the magnificent roof structures.
The rooms are large, spacious with lots of natural light and each two/three-storied building has 6 to 9 rooms. The Turkish art is expressed in its fragile woodwork, indoor knobs, banisters and carved wall and ceiling decorations. The ornamental styles and elaborate carvings depart an elegant touch to these beautiful houses. It is a "must see" if you ever visit Safranbolu.
