Touring Turkey is a great way to experience the fascinating country. This mystical country has such a great history that goes back to the dawn of civilization. The culture of the Turkish people consists of a mixture of Middle Eastern, Asian, European and Ottoman traditions. If you have never experienced to Turkey, I highly recommend you consider it.
The great capital Constantinople was renamed Istanbul by the Turks. This ancient capital was once the center for many of the great empires that have shaped our world. Constantinople was the most wealthy and greatest city in Europe during the Middle Ages.
Istanbul is one of the largest cities in the world and has been called one of the world´s ¨hippest cities¨. The city has tons of important historic buildings, art galleries and museums to visit. There is always something to do in this amazing city including relaxing in a hamam, enjoying an exotic meal or just people watching.
My favorite part of Istanbul is the Grand Bazaar. Here you can shop until you drop in this mini-city market that offers over four thousand shops and stalls. The place is filled with energy and music and is a real cultural experience.
The beautiful peak of Mount Agri is great to visit for both its beauty and history. This is the greatest peak in Turkey and is an important symbol. According to the bible, Mount Agri was the place where Noah´s ark landed after the floods.
Mount Agri is actually a dormant volcano that is covered with snow. In the book of Genesis, it was called Mount Ararat. A great place to visit here is the geological hollow near the Uzengili village, which is said to have the shape of an ark.
Cappadocia is another great place to see and is located in central Turkey. Cappadocia is a magical place in nature that is made of volcanic stones that are sculpted by centuries of wind and rain. Cappadocia is an ancient city and its previous inhabitants built their city inside of these soft volcanic stones.
Turkey is a spectacular country with an amazing history. Nature lovers will rejoice in the beautiful landscapes of this ancient land. Turkey has an amazing mixture of different cultures including European, Asian, Middle Eastern and Ottoman traditions. Turkey is also a great place to experience the great mixture of cultural influences that does not exist anywhere else on the earth.
