Bartın is one of the centers in Turkey's Black Sea region that is becoming increasingly attractive for tourists. With its rich architectural heritage, Bartın is 80 kilometers east of Zonguldak in Bartin province on the Black Sea coast of Turkey, the calm city of timbered houses. It's one of the newest provinces of Turkey.
