Sivas is a city of historical significance, as the resolution to liberate the country from the occupying forces was adopted during a national congress convened in 1919.

Today, the 19th-century building where the congress was held has been fully restored as the Atatürk and Congress Museum, with a display from the War of Liberation and an ethnographic exhibit.

The Museum of Archaeology and Stone Works in the Buruciye Madrasah displays finds from local digs and Islamic tombstones decorated with reliefs.

In the markets, you will discover excellent Sivas carpets for sale, as the city has a well-deserved reputation for beautiful weaving.
