The highest point in the citadel is locked so you get bothered going all up there and even climb some stairs that could be considered dangerous and you face a locked door preventing you from getting to the highest tower in the citadel. it was a frustration for me. as I mentioned in the title it is a good place to have a view over the city and you have a cafe there so you can have a rest and see the city

The Castle of Kars is a former fortification located in Kars, Turkey. It is open to tourists but it is a steep climb. It was built in 1153 by Vizier Firuz Akay commissioned by Saltuk Sultan Malik Izzeddin Saltuk II. The outer walls surrounding the city were built in the 12th century.

Mom and I visited Kars and the Citadel was situated right above our hotel ( Hotel Katerina). It provides a great panoramic view of the city but we really wished that it was better cared for. It broke my heart to see the graffiti and trash. The citadel desperately needs few people to regularly patrol the area.

If you have some time to kill, it's a nice place for a stroll to get your bearing of the city and have a panoramic view of Kars. We didnt enter as it was closed at the time, however the view of a snow covered Kars was Magical :)
