Things to do

Zagan Pasha MosqueZagan Pasha Mosque, a historic mosque in Balıkesir, is where Mustafa Kemal Atatürk delivered his famous "Balıkesir Khutbah" in 1923. The mosque was built in 1461 by Zagan Pasha (1446–1462 or 1469), an Ottoman military commander and Grand Vizier of Albanian origin. The mosque is part of a complex located at the centre of the city; consisting of a tomb and a hammam. The mosque, along with the tomb, broke down in 1897 and was rebuilt in 1908 by the Mutasarrıf (Governor) Ömer Ali Bey.It is the largest mosque in Balıkesir. The mosque is constructed in ashlar masonry. It consists of one main dome surrounded by four side domes, which are separated by vaults. The entrance of the mosque is through large double-winged wooden doors in the north, west and east. The minaret of the mosque is situated on the northwest corner of the building (donated by Hacı Hafız Efendi of Arabacıoğulları, a notable family in Balıkesir). In the courtyard of the mosque, two shadirvans and a tomb are situated. Clock towerThe clock tower in Balikesir is a 66-foot tall domed building with four faces and a balcony. It also features a bell. It is situated at the centre of the city and can be seen from afar. The building was built in Ottoman era. However, the clock tower was greatly damaged in an earthquake and was rebuilt in 1901. The clock tower represents power, cultural heritage along with the state’s authority of the Ottoman Empire. As Islamic prayers have to be performed according to a strict time. A clock tower was built in every city of the Ottoman Empire and sundials were placed in most of the mosques.Atatürk Parkı BalıkesirAtatürk Parkı Balıkesir is a large park in Balikesir. The park is lush green with beautiful flowers in each and every corner. The park has a walking track along with big green patches of grass where people can sit, have picnics, and children can play etc. At its centre; the park houses a lake with many fountains in it, an over bridge goes from one side to the other of the lake.Değirmen Boğazı Tabiat ParkıDeğirmen Boğazı Tabiat Parkı is a simple but beautiful park in Balikesir. The park is much like Atatürk Parkı Balıkesir but is located within a forest. So instead of large green patches of grass, one sees many trees and a more natural look to the environment. Within the park is a large lake at its middle with an over bridge for crossing to the other side.Museum of the Nationalist Forces in BalıkesirMuseum of the Nationalist Forces in Balıkesir has been dedicated to the ‘Kuva-yi Milliye’ (Nationalist Forces) which were formed as part of the Turkish National Movement during the Turkish War of Independence (1919–1923).The museum was originally once a mansion built for Giridizade Mehmet Pasha (treasurer of the Karasi Sanjak) in 1840. In 1900, the first mansion burned down, a new mansion was built afterwards by the treasurer's grandson; Halil Pasha. During the Turkish War of Independence, the building used to serve as the meeting place for the local nationalist forces. On May 15th, 1919, many prominent citizens of Balıkesir gathered in this mansion and formed Kuva-yi Milliye to fight against the foreign troops.

Culture and History

Close to today’s Balıkesir used to be the Roman town of Hadrianutherae, founded by the emperor Hadrian. Hadrian had come to the region (A.D. 124) as a result of a successful bear hunting session. It is said that the city had consisted of a castle, a homestead, a stud and a few homes in the area. The members of the Roman and Pre-Byzantine dynasty once used this castle and the area around it as a vacation spot and for hunting.During the Byzantine period, the small town had become increasingly neglected and was known as Palaeokastron; meaning Old Castle. But when the Turkmens came from the Middle Asia to Mysia; they called it ‘Balak Hisar’ because of the remains of castle, Hisar meaning castle in Turkish. In 1345, the city was annexed by the Ottomans and named Karasi; as it was founded by Karasi Beg by using the remains of the old town. The city houses the mid-14th century Yıldırım Mosque (built by Beyazıt I), which is the city's oldest mosque; while the Zağnos Paşa Mosque (built by the Grand Vizier of Mehmet the Conqueror Zağnos Paşa in 1461) used to be a part of a great complex, today only the mosque and baths remain of this great complex. The Saat Kulesi also known as the Clock Tower (built by Mehmet Paşa in 1827) is a smaller version of the Galata Tower. The Karesi Bey Mausoleum of 1336 contains the cenotaphs (monuments) of Karesi Bey (founder of Balıkesir in the Ottoman era) and his five sons. The artifacts from the ‘Karesi Bey Mausoleum site’ have been taken from the area and put on display in the newly-completed ‘Balıkesir Museum’.
