Erzincan is a city in Eastern Anatolia. After suffering from powerful earthquakes (in 1939 which leveled the whole city and most recently in 1992), it has undergone a process of renewal and has become a modern city—Erzincan is one of the most orderly cities in Turkey. The population is approximately 300,000. Many stores and shopping malls can be found in Erzincan.

Get in

By train

There is a daily train (Doğu Express) from Istanbul. Doğu Express calls at Ankara, too. There is also another daily train from Ankara (Erzurum Express), which is reported to be more comfortable (and also more expensive) than Doğu Express.

Get around


  • Girlevik Waterfalls. One of Turkey's most beautiful.
  • Ekşisu Piknik Tesisleri. Natural mineral water source, and a picnic area.
  • Dörtyol. Downtown Erzincan.
  • Esentepe. A higher hill from which you can view all of the city.
  • And many other picnic areas.


Peevish rivers around Erzincan offers rafting opportunities full of adrenaline.

Perhaps the most special and unique culinary offer of Erzincan is Erzincan döneri, served as a sandwich or together with rice and fried potatoes. Check out Kebabistan, Döneristan or any other kebab shop around Dörtyol area; a portion (100 gr) should cost no more than 9 TL.
