Tokat - TurkeyTokat
The city of Tokat is the capital of Tokat Province (Turkish: Tokat ili) of the Black Sea region in northern Turkey. Its adjacent provinces are Amasya to the northwest, Yozgat to the southwest, Sivas to the southeast, and Ordu to the northeast. Tokat lies inland of the Black Sea region situated 422 kilometers from the capital of the Turkish Republic in Ankara. Two notable monuments in this province are the Hatuniye Medrese of the 15th century, built by Sultan Bayezid II, and a Seljuk bridge spanning the Yeşilırmak River, belonging to the 12th century. The Latifoğlu Mansion is a third, which is an example of the traditional architecture of a Turkish house of the 19th century, restored recently to its original state. Tokat (Greek Ευδοκία) was established during the Hittite era. During the time of King Mithradates VI of Pontus, it was one of his many strongholds in Asia Minor. The name from which the modern town derives is Ευδοκία, which implies an ecclesiastical foundation during the Byzantine era. After the Battle of Manzikert, the town like most of Asia Minor, came under the control of the Seljuq Turks. However, after the death of Sultan Suleiman Ibn Qutulmish in 1086, the Emir Danishmend Gazi took control of the area, operating from his power base in the town of Sivas. It would be many decades before the Seljuks took control of that region, in the reign of Kilij Arslan II. After the battle of Battle of Köse Dağ the Seljuqs hold over the region was lost, and local Emirs such as the Eretna took power until the rise of the Ottomans.

The most important landmark is the Ottoman Citadel, with 28 towers, founded on a rocky hill overlooking the town. Other sights include the Garipler Mosque dating to the 12th century and the Ali Paşa Mosque of the 16th century and the Gök Medrese (Pervane Bey Darussifasi), which was constructed in 1270. It was founded as a school of theology, and has been converted into a museum, housing archaeological artifacts from the area. The Latifoglu Konak, a late 18th century Ottoman residence, is an example Baroque architecture. The two-story building has been restored and converted into a small museum. Much of the furniture in the kitchen, study, visitors' rooms with bath and toilet, bedroom, master's room and harem is original. The city is also home to Gaziosmanpaşa Üniversitesi, founded in 1992 and named after the local hero, Gazi Osman Paşa. Cuisine distinctive to Tokat include Tokat Kebabi and Zile pekmezi, the latter of which is served in a wooden pot. Zile pekmezi is made from grapes after a special treatment.

Tokat Province is divided into 12 districts with the capital district being Tokat.
