Kütahya has a small collection of nicely restored Ottoman mansions. The best ones sit along cobblestoned Germiyan Sokağı.
After walking down from Kütahya Kalesi, I wandered through the bazaar area on my way to Germiyan Sokağı. It was a nice glimpse into the life of locals.
At the end of the bazaar I found the Germiyan Sokağı. At the beginning, most of the homes were crumbling or being restored. The only restored home among them was the Alopaşalı Şeker Konağı, which is being used as an art gallery.
The further along the street I walked, the nicer it got. The first important one is the Mehmet Gürsoy Ceramic Workshop. He makes tiles the traditional Turkish way and has been designated a UNESCO Living Human Treasure. Across the street is the Cemile Gül Sanat Galerisi, which is a gallery with a home and fashion collection.
The next mansions are the Hanedan Konağı (a restaurant), the Ispartalılar Konağı (a hotel and restaurant), and the Germiyan Konağı (an upscale restaurant serving Ottoman cuisine).
