Turkey

Cappadocia

Situated between Ankara and Malataya, the Black Sea and the Taurus Mountains, you can visit Cappadocia in three to four days, or even five depending on how much time you have to spend.

It's the ideal place for long hikes.

Cappadocia was the core of the Empire of the Hittites during the second millenium BC, before it became a Roman province and a center for Christianity mentioned several times in the Bible.

underground frescoe

The underground frescoes with their vibrant colors are a testimony to Byzantine art.

In 726, Emperor Leon III forbid the representation of human beings in art, thus instigating a religious crisis between the "iconoclasts" and those who defended the images. Icons returned to the churches after 798, but many frescoes disappeared forever.

People come from all over the world to visit the "open air museum" called Goreme, to visit its churches with Cappadocian rock drawings, to contemplate the "fairy chimneys" near the village of Aktepe (strange rock formations of volcanic origin) and to plunge into the cave-dweller cities of Neveshir, Ozhonak, Kaymaki, and Derinkuyu.

center of Kayseri

Most visitors travel by bus. The centers of Kayseri, Goreme, Avanos, Urgurup, and Neveshir in Cappadocia serve as points of departure for day trips to the valleys, the hills, and the innumerable grottoes of Cappadocia.

The Dolmus (minibuses) offer service to the various sites during the summer.Travel agencies have tours available to most of the sites.

You can even fly over Cappadocia in a hot-air balloon.
