There is some fine Ottoman architecture in this city and it is lit up at night, along with the cliff side rock tombs of the ancient kings of Pontus, a Greek settlement along the shores of the Black Sea extending inland to include Amasya. Seen here is the Yesilirmak (Iris) river. Here is a map of ancient Pontus:
