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.

When you have time left and you don't know what to do then you can go and visit the clock tower. Around the clock tower there is a mosque and shops.

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.

For a tourist, this square hasn't the same importance as for the locals.However, it is a place where a tourist can experience the local 'atmosphere'. It is a lively place, which offers a wonderful view of the sea.

A mini ordinary mosque 1. While the mosque is famous for its small size, it is an ordinary mosque exterior and interior. 2. Anyway, remember to bring your camera and take more pictures. There is a clock tower nearby and there is a great sea view over there. There is plenty of juice shops over there so in case you are thirsty, buy some juices. Show less
