The 12 districts of Kocaeli

1- Gebze District

Gebze, which forms Kocaeli's border with Istanbul and is strictly connected to it, acts as a bridge that links both cities on their respective Asian sides. Due to the presence of important food, sugar, and other businesses, as well as multiple different industrial cities, this area is regarded as the Kocaeli's industrial center and economic hub.

The Gebze district is the most densely populated in Kocaeli and home to more than 500 thousand people who commute every day back and forth to Istanbul thanks to its location near the city of Istanbul. This, actually, gives Gebze a high and differentiating value from other districts of Kocaeli and makes it a pleasant spot for those who have businesses and firms there in Istanbul.

Contrary to what is seen in other cities like Istanbul, this district is most well-known for its industry, which includes a sizable number of firms and significant factories. Furthermore, the infrastructure in this area is also robust and stable, comfortably accommodating the substantial population expansion, which has had a positive influence on the real estate market and attracted building enterprises to the area.

The population in Gebze is regarded as middle- and upper-class, particularly given that it is located close to Istanbul, and its residents are renowned for their refinement and urbanization. Gebze also looks out over the distinctive Sea of Marmara and has a distinctive shoreline that draws plenty of tourists because of the breathtaking scenery, water, and lush greenery.

3- Darıca District

Darıca is located exactly next to the Gebze area, which has a direct connection to Istanbul, as was already mentioned. Does this imply that Darıca has similar traits? Absolutely, without a doubt, and this indicates a fortunate and vital location given that it serves as a crossing point for hundreds of thousands of people entering and leaving Istanbul every day.

Another aspect that distinguishes this location is its proximity to the Sea of Marmara, which is thought to be the most popular tourist attraction in the region and which we will discuss next. Furthermore, the area offers breathtaking views, particularly over the Sultan Orhan Ghazi Bridge, one of Turkey's longest suspension bridges.

Darıca district, like Istanbul's surrounding areas such as Tuzla, Sultanbeyli, and others, is regarded as one of the most popular locations to reside.

4- Körfez District

Körfez is a unique area and a popular tourist attraction in the Kocaeli province. It shares borders with the Derince region to the north, Izmit to the west, and the Gebze region to the east. The current population of Körfez, which is around 180 thousand people, is average when compared to that of its neighbors.

Given the several golden eras that have passed through this area, the two most notable of which were the Roman and Ottoman eras, Körfez has a rich history and is full of myths. However, Körfez is one of Kocaeli's oldest municipalities, having been founded in 1973 following a vote in the region.

Several tourist attractions make Körfez unique, and this naturally resulted in a resurgence of tourism in that area, which became a source of revenue for the locals. This also had an impact on the government's increasing interest in it as more foreigners and tourists began to visit this area.

This region is home to a middle- and upper-class populace, and the majority of them welcome the presence of foreigners. Several foreigners have chosen to own real estate in this area, whether it is for permanent living or short-term residence. Now let us take a closer look at the neighborhoods in this area.

The most important tourist destinations in Körfez, Kocaeli

  • Hereke halısı: It is the world's oldest carpet, with a portion of it preserved at St. Petersburg's Hermitage Museum.
  • Caesar William Palace: This historical site, which belonged to the German Kaiser William during the Ottoman Empire, is one of the local area's historical landmarks.
  • Yarımca Cherry Forests: Cherry trees may be seen as far as the eye can see in this beautiful forest, which is a thick woodland.
  • Tüpraş Refinery: This oil refinery was founded in 1983 AD.

 

Real estate in Körfez, Kocaeli

The quality and finishes of real estate in the Körfez district are generally ordinary, which is to be expected given the area's typically middling level and the few available real estate alternatives. There are not as many apartment complexes as we are used to seeing in large cities like Istanbul but rather medium-rise residential structures with housing possibilities, which means that the district is appropriate for middle-class communities and families since it is not a good place to invest.

 

5- Gölcük District

Gölcük, with a land area of around 206.67 square kilometers and a population of over 175 thousand, is situated in the north of the Gulf of Armutlu on the shore of the Sea of Marmara, south of Kocaeli. This area enjoys a favorable position that has given it a beautiful aesthetic in terms of scenery, which has strengthened its magnificence in light of the presence of the Gulf of Izmit.

It is considered the epitome of a tourist destination; anybody who traveled to Kocaeli undoubtedly paid a visit to this place, particularly to the special garden there. Like any other area in Kocaeli, Gölcük enchanted people who visited it, won their hearts, and caused them to become emotionally connected to it due to its beauty.

The name of this area translates to "the small lake" in Turkish, referring to a beautiful lake that mediates a magnificent landscape there. We see in it scenes that are like those we see in dreams and kid's cartoons, such as a rustic cabin in the center of a field with a view of a lake that is a stunning shade of blue, next to which are trees that swing in time with the sky's clouds and are alive with chirping birds.

As seen by the municipality's most recent project, the Gölcük-Izmit metro project, which is still in the early stages of development, the Gölcük region, like other regions, has a strong infrastructure, whether in terms of building facilities or service facilities. Let us now learn about this area's neighborhoods before moving on to its tourism attractions there.

6- Çayırova District

Çayırova is situated quite near the Gebze district, which we previously discussed, and is located at the entrance leading into Kocaeli from the side of Istanbul. Due to its close proximity to Istanbul, its position is special and distinctive, making it easier for residents of the area to go to and from Istanbul for work.

Çayırova is one of the regions that spread from the western portion of Izmit Bay and is rich in plains and expansive green meadows. In the past, this location served as one of the resting places for Ottoman Sultan Muhammad al-Fatih to prepare for battles before their start. History tells that on one occasion, he was joined by more than 300,000 warriors there.

Nowadays, Çayırova is a developed industrial district of exceptional quality due to the abundance of large industrial facilities in the area. Its diverse industries include many different lines, but the most notable ones are those related to food, hygiene, cosmetics, steel, minerals, chemistry, and most recently, automobiles, which were just extended after Turkey's keen interest in the sector.

After being associated with the Gebze area for a long time, the municipality of Çayırova was founded in 2008. The last few years have seen a lot of focus on drawing inhabitants and striving to strengthen the area; this has been accomplished by introducing services, amenities, and employment in an effort to draw the greatest amount of people there. This strategy worked and increased the population to almost 150 thousand individuals. This number is spread across the region's following neighborhoods:

7- Derince District

Derince district is located in the middle of Kocaeli and comprises around 196 square kilometers. It is bounded on the west by the Kandıra area, on the north by the city of Istanbul, on the south by the Izmit region, and on the east by the aforementioned Körfez region, and it has a prominent strategic location that is characterized by the presence of a sea port!

On the shore of this area, there is an international seaport where the bulk of the locals work on transporting commodities to all regions of the world. Perhaps one day, when you come to visit this area or travel from it to the regions of Yalova, Bursa, and others, you will see it—a sizable seaport that boosted the region's value among its neighbors in Kocaeli.

This area, like all regions, provides extensive public services and utilities, as most municipalities do, in order to deliver the finest services to its inhabitants and residents. The municipality works around the clock to raise the value of buildings and the real estate market in this area, which is served by a strong and reliable infrastructure.

And everyone who traveled to this area or the city of Istanbul must have seen this fascinating mountain with the activities it offers as well as its lofty height, particularly now that there are so many hotels rising upon the summit.

The Kartepe region, on the other hand, is one of the most attractive tourist destinations because of the numerous tourist attractions there as well as the simple nature of the locals, who promoted the attendance and attraction of the greatest number of visitors to the area in order to profit from their stay and boost their local economy. 

The Kartepe area is perched on a hill above sea level, as may be seen from the stunning views of the nearby Lake Sapanca. More than 120,000 people live there, all from the lower and middle classes, yet they are some of the best and most generous individuals you will ever meet.

As the municipality looks after the tourist destinations and spots inside this area, it also looks after the infrastructure and its development, providing essential services and amenities with a wide range of uses. This has increased the number of visitors and tourists as well as those who wish to move to the area, which is absolutely advantageous to the local population and even the city as a whole.

9- Başiskele District

Başiskele is an archaeological and historical site that dates back to BC. This area, along with the Karamürsel region, is considered the entryway to Yalova, a city well-known for its sulfur water, about which we have previously written.

In the past, the Başiskele region has been acknowledged as one of the key historical and archaeological locations through which several civilizations and empires have passed, with the Roman Empire, which lasted for more than a century, being the most prominent. The Ottoman Empire, which flourished in the fifteenth century and lasted more than 600 years straight, is in second place.

Başiskele is known for its wealth of nature and places full of woods and lovely green meadows, and this renown has influenced the development of natural tourism sites of magnificent green hills, plains, and plateaus, not to mention that its northern section overlooks the famed Sea of Marmara.

This northern section in particular is a fantastic place to spend weekends, especially on the coast of Başiskele, which the municipality recently developed for residents and guests. In fact, this area is consider more of a tourist than a place for residence and stability, since there is a lot of momentum in the green tourism attractions in that area. Now let us explore its neighborhoods.

10- Karamürsel District

With views of the sea and the Gulf of Marmara and a distance of around 110 kilometers from Istanbul, Kocaeli's Karamürsel district is one of the most picturesque parts of the city. Furthermore, this area serves as the entrance to the city of Yalova, given that it is the final section of Kocaeli in this direction.

The Karamürsel area was given its name in honor of Kara Mustafa, the first commander of the Ottoman naval force. Kara Mustafa Pasha was a famous commander who is well-known for his management of the naval fleets. Karamürsel was originally taken by the Ottomans in 1337 by the second Ottoman Sultan, Orhan Ghazi. This area has seen the success of several historical civilizations, the two most significant of which were Roman and Ottoman.

If you enjoy gorgeous, scenic landscapes, the lovely and stunning Karamürsel region is the place for you. Here, you can view flowing rivers, lush green trees, and a variety of magnificent birds, all of which have enticing sounds and sights. Just imagine how lovely it would be to stay in one of its hotels perched on trees, surrounded by the scenic surroundings, flowing rivers, and other lush plants.

The Karamürsel region is known for its many attractive tourist destinations where the family may enjoy a memorable holiday. In the paragraphs that follow, these locations will be mentioned one after another.

Real estate in Karamürsel, Kocaeli

Real estate in this area is largely confined to villas and lands, which is what you need most frequently since living in flats and closed homes in a place like this is unattractive; you need to appreciate the aromatic nature there. Investment in agriculture was highly appreciated in the lands of this region, and the government even promoted it by offering various incentives to both foreigners and locals.

 

11- Kandıra District

Kandıra, the unknown pearl of the Black Sea, is located near Kocaeli, the region's most distant and northern district. With magnificent resorts and a long seashore that reaches into the Black Sea, it is recognized as one of Turkey's most stunning coastlines. Generally speaking, the Black Sea is renowned for its lovely beaches and warm waters that are ideal for swimming and enjoyment.

No fewer than 700,000–800,000 tourists and visitors travel to this region each year, and this is a number that should not be undervalued at all, especially because this location in Kocaeli is not the only one that is well-known for its beautiful natural characteristics; its peers also share that characteristic. However, this indicates that the municipality and the government seem to be very interested in drawing visitors to the area.

It takes approximately an hour and a half to travel from this region to Istanbul. It is a serene natural environment surrounded by dense pine trees that provides tourists with psychological relief. It is strongly recommended that you include it on your travel agenda, and do not forget to explore its breathtaking coastline and try some of the very exceptional Kandira yogurt produced there.

The relatively uncomplicated middle-class society of the Kandira region has a significant impact on attracting people who value quiet and simple living, and many of them did buy real estate in this district for the sake of short-term stays, enjoyment of the region's tourism attractions, and getting to know and appreciate the beautiful natural surroundings of this area. Let us now have a look at the neighborhoods in this area.
