“Good place to hang around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Its a good place o hang around in a good weather or summer evenings. Its closer to saat kulesi (clock tower). A close by small food street offers good variety of food. Boat trips are also available at a very close pier.

“Best of Izmir”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

This square is probably the nicest site in the city, close to the sea, the sunsets are a wonderful view from there, the clock tower is cute and well preserved

“Beautiful Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Izmir is not your typical touristy place to visit in Turkey, but I am glad I went there. Konak Square is probably what I most associate with Izmir. Very lovely part of town, close to the Aegean sea. If you are in Izmir, I would definitely make a point to stop at Konak Square. There are lots of pigeons as well and I think there are people selling food that you can give to them if that's your thing.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Watch small mosque and clock tower. They stands opposite to each other. It is interesting to compare traditional art approach realised in mosque and new european approach realised in clock tower
