Located in the Western Black Sea region, Karabük is a tourism paradise with its historical Safranbolu houses and ancient cities. In the first years, upon the decision of the Great Leader Atatürk to revolutionize the way of industrialization, Karabük was chosen for Turkey’s first integrated iron-steel center location, due to its proximity to the coal Republic basin and the coast, its location on the railway route and strategic elevation.
