Historic Site · Tourist Spot
With an appealing natural setting and peaceful atmosphere, Halki Theological School remains the area's hub of culture, preserving a thousand years of history and religious heritage. Part of a monastery complex founded nearly ten centuries before the opening of the school, this educational institution functioned between 1844 and 1971, when Turkish government banned private colleges. Although still officially closed, the seminary hosts regular conferences attended by its notable alumni, many of which serve as bishops, scholars, and patriarchs around the world. The school's library includes over 100,000 books, manuscripts, and journals.
