Quite the place to be it seems. Lots of things in the same area, good for sitting around and enjoying your time. The cafe by the ferry was quite good and very popular.

This square is a central point in the city centre, just by the metro, bus station and taxi station, so while in Izmir you're most likely to see it anyway, either by passing by or stopping. While passing by, look up in the air to make sure you see the symbol of Izmir; the clock tower. Also have a look... More

It looks beautiful when it's all lit up at night, especially the old tower, and it was never too crowed.

Konak square is very busy street, But I like it! Main area of Izmir. A big open space with a clock tower in the center.

Certainly nothing to get excited about but probably more exciting on a weekday, and a good place to meet someone in your party if you don't know the city well and want to separate for a bit. Cool little clock tower.

A big open space with a tower in the center. Was not awe-inspiring, but took some pictures while we were there. Could be a good place for people watching.

The square is located between the seaside and the market, near the bridge over the main road to the Konak Pier. The Clock Tower (Saat Kulesi) and the Konak Mosque are in the square but other than these there is nothing to see apart from various Government buildings. You will find lots of cafes nearby and it is only a... More

Situated between the seaside and the market, it is good central point for exploring the city and have some rest in the meantime. The Clock Tower (Saat Kulesi) and the miniature Konak Mosque are nice ornaments at the square.

This is a traditional meeting place that has been very well set up to match a modern city, an amazing blue water feature is a key element of the square.
