Giresun Island - Review

1.6km off the coast of the main city is the Giresun island. According to a popular legend, the island was the abode of the female warrior clan called the Amazons. You can still see one of the temples this clan built on the island. Besides the temple, you can see ramparts and fortifications of the island from its heyday. Inside are two presses; they could be used for making wine or oil. There is a monastery on the island which is said to have been built in the 5th or 6th century AD. This island is covered with trees that have medicinal properties or are commercially valuable. This is said to be the only liveable island in the Black Sea.

  • Sisli ve yağmurlu bir zamanda gittik bizi adaya çıkaracak tekneler çalışmıyordu o nedenle göremedik

  • Tarihi ada karabatak ve martılara ev sahipliği yapıyor. Karadenizin yaşanabilir tek adasına defne ağaçları ayrı bir güzellik katmakta. Giresun limanından adaya duzenlenen tur güzel havalarda görülmeye değer. Adadaki şapel, işlevini yitirmiş su kuyusu ve mezar kalıntıları bir zamanlar sürdürülen yaşamdan geriye kalanlar. Giresun için eşsiz bir değer olan ada, tüm güzelliğiyle ziyaretçilerinin zihninde hoş bir anı bırakıyor.

  • Karadeniz'in tek adası. Tarihi kalıntılar içinde harika bir manzara

  • جزيرة صغيرة لها تاريخ وبها أعشاش الطيور. المرشد السياحي لها سيسرد تاريخها والتعليمات ولاكن الجمال يكون في العبارة ذهابا ورجوعا بها مبنى قلعة متهادمة قديمة ومقبرة. وبها صخرة على ثلاث حجرات يقول المرشد أنها مباركة لطلب الإنجاب. أوصي بالذهاب إليها في وقت بارد.

  • Doğu Karadeniz'in yaşanabilir tek adası. Mükemmel ötesi harika. Altınpost Teknesi ile ziyaret edebilirsiniz
