Saturday, June 25, 2022
Kure Mountains National Park was established as a national park in 2000. The park is located in the Black Sea Region, between Kastamonu and Bartin. Kure Mountains extend 300 kilometers from the west bank of the Bartin River to the east bank of the Kizilirmak River. The mountain range, also known as the Isfendiyar Mountains, borders the Black Sea on the north and Gokirmak on the south.
State authorities, charity organizations, and local residents have been working together to protect nature and traditional lifestyles and maintain sustainability. With its buffer zone and high level of local involvement in environmental conservation, the national park has become one of Turkey's most compelling examples of nature preservation and natural resource management.
