Historic Elevator

One of the first things that comes to mind when it is said Izmir to travelers and, of course, city-goers who leave no place to go, is the historic elevator. How could not it come to mind? Think of two streets and an elevator that connects them. The historical elevator, one of the symbols of Izmir, was built in 1907 based on this function. It connects Mithatpaşa Street with Şehit Nihat Bey Street. In the records it written that it was built by Nesim Levi, one of the city's leading figures. The story of its construction is that it broke the foot of another important person from the city who fell down the stairs rising in the same place before. After this incident, Levi decides to build an elevator at said point in the city ‘as a step to increase security’. The elevator in Konak district offers the function of meeting streets for decades with a fee. It serves as a paid vehicle. Today, the historic lift, which is used free of charge, is a kind of viewing terrace, partly because it offers the opportunity to see the city from the top. The historical value, which also sees restoration in various periods, can be used between 08.00 in the morning and 00.00 in the night. Queues can be seen at some hours.

    Asansör benim en sevdiğim yerlerden birisidir. 1 kat çıkıyorsunuz ancak 4 5 kat a tekabül ediyor. Manzarası Bi harika. İzmir ayaklarının altında ve mis gibi deniz havası var.
