KarabükKarabük is situated on an important trade route between Amasra on the coast and central Anatolia. The history of the city goes back to the early years of the Turkish Republic, when it was a small sub-village formed by 13 houses in the Öğlebeli village ofSafranbolu. There was also a small train station on the Ankara - Zonguldak route. The town started to develop with the industrialization of the country. One of the first steel factories of the Republic was built here in 1939 after which it grew rapidly and incorporated Öğlebeli village as a quarter. Karabük became a municipality and then a township in the Safranbolu district in 1941. She became a district in 1953 and she finally became a provincial center in 1995. Hadrianapolis (Eskipazar) is an ancient city from the Roman Empire of the 4th century. İt is about 3 km to Karabük. There are many fountains,churches,roman baths. Although most of it is recently excavated, the illegal excavations which have been going on for many years have damaged Eskipazar's chances of becoming a major tourist attraction.
