It is very beautiful and a nice piece of art, especially sunset time the sunshines on grey stones and makes very good view. I ate simit and drink tea while watching this beauty.

It was a nice clock tower, but thats all it was. The area around was nothing special. But ifyou are a big fan of feeding birds this is the place to go. Also the kemeralti bazar is nearby.

I don't know what it's like in the day time but at sunset it was wonderful. A lovely atmosphere in the square as the lights came on. So kitch, great fun, and a lovely square between the old town and the sea.

Looks really cool, especially in the nights, when it is translucent. The Konak square around is nice as well.

Located in a central square, this spot is great for photo opportunities. Also, it's walkable to the main central market area so it's just a quick stop on the way to shopping in the bazaar.

Situated in the heart of the city, this is a great place to people watch. It's a little cold in February to linger but during the hot summer months, it's a great place to cool down in the sea breeze. The little mosque beside the clock is stunningly beautiful.

The clock tower is the symbol of Izmir, at least when it comes to tourism and souvernirs. You will find it in Konak square, in the heart of the city. The tower may not be the most glorious attraction of the area, but still it is a "must see", and as anyone visiting Izmir is most likely to pass by... More

Beautiful achitectural creation. Small scale monument next to a tiny mosque and in the middle of a central square of the city of Izmir.

This rather splendid city was spoiled for us by the persistent scam perpetrated by Kurdish shoe-cleaners in the beach area. Every persuasive trick was tried; including 'do it for free'. Relenting, and giving a tip, we were told afterwards that some ten Euros was the price. Taken by surprise, they managed to get £16 from two people. This appears to... More

It is a monument, very nice to take photos, during the day and also during the night, when warm colours enlighten it. It is besides a cute small mosque and some (not cute) government buildings.
