I loved this square is square, clean, appealing, large but not feeling empty, with the beautiful clock tower marking the centre and the cute little Konak Mosque standing shy but pretty at the end. Everything is so balanced and airy, no large structures within it, no useless art pieces or cheap displays. Common sense and simplicity at its best!

Well done Izmir!

The official name of this square is Atatürk Square. This square, which is one of the most important and meeting areas of İzmir, can be called the Heart of Izmir. In the middle of this square, the historical Izmir Clock Tower stands; and there are important public buildings such as Yali Mosque, First Bullet Monument, City Hall and Government House around. Here, you can feed the birds and visit the Historical Kemeraltı Bazaar at the backside. During the summer period (2019), there was a renovation work on the Clock Tower in the square and it was surrounded.

This is the central location in Izmir and always bustling with life. You can easily spend 2-3 hour here just watching the crowd and seeing the local vendors selling their stuff. You also get a very beautiful view of Aegean sea from here. And kemeralti is just in front of it. If you walk a little further, you will reach Konak metro and bus station from where you can go to any part of Izmir.

Konak Square in the center of Izmir, Turkey. The Levantine French architect Raymond Charles Père designed the Izmir Clock Tower. It was built in 1901 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Abdülhamid II's accession to the throne. The sultan actually celebrated his 25th anniversary by having more than 100 clock towers built in public squares throughout the Ottoman Empire.

I had an hour to spare today and wondered through Konak Square after catching the metro there. I walked through the park and past the water features till I came to the old Konak Cami, which must be one of the smallest mosques in existence. It is like a small rare precious building for prayer and spirituality. Behind it on the square is visible the Saat Kulesi from the late Ottoman Empire, at the moment it must be undergoing cleaning and maintenance as it had boards surrounding it’s base.

This is a lovely square to visit when you have a spare 30 minutes in Izmir.

It is considered the main landmark of Izmir- I guess I can undersand it, but I don't fully agree. It is so large that the Clock Tower and the mosque seem both insignificant and disproportionate in size. Not impressed.

Konak square is one of most important squares of the city of Izmir, situated close to the sea and Kemeralti market. In the surrounding area you can find a lot of cafes, restaurants and shops. On the square you can admire Saat Kulesi (the really picturesque Clock Tower) and a very nice small mosque. If you are in Izmir, this is a place to visit!

Make sure you walk to Konak Pier when you are here. The main structure was designed by Gustav Eiffel (I hope I spelled that right). Since it is covered, go inside and you can see the steel architecture. A number of shops are there and many nice restaurants.

Konak Square with its beautiful, yet small Clock tower in the middle is the very central spot of Izmir.
At one side of it is the Kemaralti bazaar, while on the other is the Kordonbeyu sea side promenade. It's a must see for every visitor, and a local's meeting place.
