Turkey’s First Glass Viewing Terrace Reopened After Renovation

The glass observation terrace built on the İncekaya Canyon in Safranbolu, the town of Karabuk famous for its historical houses, which is on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List, welcomes its guests again after the renovation works.

The terrace, which was built in 2012 on the 80-meter-deep canyon, which also includes an aqueduct with a length of 116 meters, 6 arches and a width of 110 to 220 centimeters, built by the Grand Vizier Izzet Mehmet Pasha 3 centuries ago, is Turkey’s first glass viewing terrace.

The 11-meter-long, 75-tonne load-resistant terrace located in the historical district, which is among the “top 20 best protected cities” in the world, hosted approximately 1 million 300 thousand tourists a year before the renovation.

The glass viewing terrace, which has not been visited for the last 7 months due to the renovation works, reopened its doors with the Eid al-Adha holiday after the completion of the works.

According to the information received from the Special Provincial Administration officials, the terrace hosted approximately 250 thousand domestic and foreign tourists on 9-25 July.
