Photographer's Note

Tokat is a small city located in Turkey. It is small but lovely. I miss being there from time to time. At least no traffic jam .
The city is neighbored by : Sivas in the South, a bit to the North Tokat, and finally Amasya, even further to the North. Between these two is the nice, but not overwhelming, Turhal. Travel further to the North and you will reach the Black Sea coast at Samsun.
It has no particular sights, the castle, the mosque, the old houses all can be seen in other cities too, but the way it all hangs together gives it some special charm. And the proximity to great, though small other cities to visit, like Turhal, Zile and Niksar adds to its charm. Even closer are the Ballica Caves, that are huge and well worth a visit. The town is busily restoring many of its monuments and although they first come out a bit too bright and shiny they will mellow and look quite right in a couple of years

On this photo , you see one of the streets , unfortunately this part of town has housing of the low income inhabitants.
