Discover the timeless allure of Edirne Kaleici, the oldest and most historical district nestled in the city center. Its historical structures captivate the interest of tourists, offering a glimpse into the past. In bygone eras, the district was adorned with two-story wooden houses within gardens, crafted by skilled artisans of Rum, Bulgarian, and Jewish descent during the Ottoman period. However, the permission for urban development after fires and earthquakes has altered the historical fabric of the neighborhood. Today, only a few remnants remain of the Roman walls that once surrounded the district, with an area spanning 26 hectares. Evliya Çelebi, in his Seyahatname, documented that Kaleiçi had six gates, an area devoid of gardens, and 360 intersecting cobblestone streets resembling a chessboard.
