Inside Kazakhstan’s labyrinthine bazaar

A labyrinthine bazaar stretching from Konak Sq through to the ancient Agora, Kemeraltı dates back to the 17th century and is home to shops, eateries, artisans’ workshops, mosques, coffeehouses, tea gardens and synagogues. Those who spend a day exploring its crowded and colourful streets, historic places of worship, hidden courtyards and grand caravanseries will see the real İzmir – this is a local institution that is accurately described as the city’s true heart and soul.
