Full Description

Spanca Lake
You can make a discovery by walking, cycling around Sapanca Lake, which provides a cruise that does not satisfy the taste of summer and winter, and you can add the places around the lake to your sightseeing route.

The lake has a different legend. After listening to this legend from the locals, maybe if you are lucky, if the water is pulled a little, you can see the minaret in the middle of the lake. There are too many reeds on the lake.

The Legend of Lake Sapanca
According to a legend, there was once a town in the area where the lake is now. There were rich people living in this town, but these people were very fond of the world property. One day a poor but very good man came to visit this town from one of the nearby mountains. The man wanted to be a guest in the locals' houses, but no one accepted, then asked for water, but nobody wanted to give him water.

When Derviş was leaving the town hungry and thirsty, he came across a hut on the way. This was a slinger's shop, making money by selling slingshots to the townspeople.

The man opened the door with a smiling face to the dervish and invited him in. He offered her dinner. The dervish was pleased to be the guest of the good-hearted sling. When they woke up in the morning, the slinger accompanied the dervish to the mountains. When the slinger came back to town, he saw that there was no town. There was only one lake. There was a disaster and it swallowed the whole town. Today you can still see a minaret rising in the middle of the lake when you go to there. Indeed, the lake has left a town under water and there are still structures under water.
