  • Description


    This is the Candarli village in Iznik, Iznik Çandarlı köyü.

    Volunteers can enjoy touring the local area, which is quite beautiful, and they can also visit İznik and the surroundings, also known for its scenery and antique remains from the Roman era. In fact, Iznik is one of the most important historical and touristic locations in the Marmara region, and is called as an "open air museum", due to the sheer number of antique artifacts and buildings, many still intact. This is due to the fact that Iznik was the capital of different civilizations since 316 B.C. - the Seljuk Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire. Iznik also was an important religious center in Roman and Byzantine times.
    There are minibuses to the Iznik center in week days, they take 30 minutes to reach Iznik. The times are 8 am to the village from Iznik, and at 2 and 4 pm from Iznik to the village. Public transport from Iznik to/and from other cities is much more frequent and at all days.
    There is a village bazaar/outdoor market set up each Wednesday in Iznik. There is also a mobile market that stops by the village each evening, and it is possible to place orders.

    ***We are looking for a teammate for our camp, caravan and bungalow house facility in the forest.
    We need a friend to help with food, garden, home and hospitality. Our facility is far from the center. We think it is an amazing place for nature and forest lovers. Since we work flexibly, time outside of work is free time. No heavy or hard work. Can implement ideas and projects. It is announced to compatible and sincere friends. :)
