List of Interest Places in Eskişehir


1. Historical Odunpazarı Area


Odunpazarı is the oldest residential area of Eskisehir. In recent years, with the successful tourism investments made in the region, it has got a completely different aspect. There are many historical mansions, fountains, museums you can visit in the region.

According to the story, the first arrivals to Eskişehir were one to Odunpazarı and one to the center of Porsuk Brook. When they see that the liver hangs on this point later, they settle here.

Ottoman and Turkmen settlement forms are reflected in the buildings in this old settlement of the city. These houses, which carry traditional Ottoman architecture, are mostly two storeys. There are sections such as hall, kitchen warehouse on the lower floors, while the doors that usually open to the back garden are located at the end of the hall. On the upper floors there are rooms. Today, although the architectural structure of the houses is known to be damaged, there are also constructions which have preserved the old form.

4. Eskisehir Aviation Museum

The museum, established by the 1st Air Supply and Maintenance Command in Eskişehir, was transferred to the university in 2011 according to the protocol signed between Anadolu University and the command. Before this date, while the museum's care and visit responsibility was under the control of the soldiers, the museum completely employed civilians after the devolution.

Eskisehir Aviation Museum has a large number of aircraft. There are models still in use in these airplanes exhibited in open space. Among the models used are aircraft such as F-4 Heavy Bomber Aircraft and C4 Transportation Aircraft. However, these planes have filled their lives and have been placed here since they were restored. It is located right next to the entrance with a missile ramp that is visible to everyone. A little further ahead, there is a transport plane that used to be a café but turned upside down. This aircraft was damaged during the Cyprus War and was given to the museum after repair. Also open are police helicopters, aircraft that have been used for various purposes and have gained historical qualities.
