If you go to the Old Part of Izmir then you will also get here! Just in front to the entrance to Bazar and close to sea you will find this moder square with a nice park and a small clock tower. Have a seat there and enjoy people going by, or take a coffee in one of many cafe located there around.

“Great photo opps!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Get a kumru and an ayran, sit on a park bench and watch people go by. After a rest, head to the water for a cool breeze or head into Kemeralti for some great shopping. Either way, you can't miss!

“Feed the birds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

It is the main plaza with the tower clock, and bunch of people hanging out. It is also the entry point to Kemeralti bazaar. Since the clock tower is the main landmark on many of the souveniors you may as well see this plaza.

“A very nice place to know”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

In the middle of the Konak Square you will find the famous Saat Kulesi (Clock Tower) maybe the most important turist landmark of Izmir.

Near the Clock Tower, there is a small mosque named Konak Camii.

The square is near the very nice waterfront of the city and at a walking distance of the Kemeralti Market, an old bazaar that was established some centuries ago. If you want to reach the waterfront, you have to cross a pedestrian bridge over a very busy avenue. Near the bridge, there is a fountain and some seats, nice to have a break during your journey.

Konak Square is allways full of pigeons, and it is an excellent place for nice photos.
