See firsthand why Erzincan is so frequented by travelers, by renting a vehicle and setting off to explore the abundance of scenic and cultural attractions around Erzincan. Kelkit, lays 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south, while Refahiye can be found 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the east.
Authentic traveling is so much more than just the scenery, it's also about the poetry, song and story of a place. Your stay in Erzincan will become much more meaningful if you take the time to learn a few useful words, sayings and salutations in Turkish. Educating yourself with a smattering of basic phrases like "Benimle dans eder misiniz?", which means "Would you like to dance with me?", can help to make your vacation more enjoyable. "Where are you from?" is another good one know, so try pronouncing "Nerelisin?"
If you are in the region on the 29th of October, join the locals during the nation-wide Republic Day celebrations.
At the end of your stay in Erzincan, spend the last of your liras on last-minute souvenirs and say Hoşçakal (farewell).
