Welcome to Giresun

At the centre is Giresun Merkez, an open square on the coast road. Don't confuse it with the square with a clock tower a few hundred metres to the west. The town hall is on the inland side of the square; the cobbled pedestrian main drag, Gazi Caddesi, climbs uphill from here.

In May Giresun holds the International Giresun Aksu Festival, which ends with a trip around tiny Giresun Island, just 1.5km off the eastern end of Giresun Bay.
