Goynuk, a town and and a district of Bolu Province in the Black Sea region of Turkey, has scrumptious Ottoman Empire houses as well as even older mosques, tombs, fountains and Turkish baths. Goynuk is a town of great historical interest, and an attractive location with narrow streets and a pretty stream running through the centre. The houses that have been standing for more than a century have a wonderful view.

The village of Goynuk dates back to over 2500 years, to the times of the Phrygians, Lydians, Persians and Ancient Romans. In the 14th century, it was absorbed into the Ottoman Empire in the early 14th century.

However, the ruins of the past still exist today.
