Holidays to Turkey
Holidays to Turkey - A country as immense as Turkey and one so varied in topography, culture, history, religion and geography is surely deserving of avid exploration. Turkey is a real dichotomy.
Part European, part Asian, the country even physically has a foot in both camps as the Bosphorus literally straddles both continents. The country is the proud keeper of many rich archaeological marvels and even boasts no less than two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus (today's Bodrum) should be on everyone's itinerary for an exciting view to the past.
Turkey even has biblical connotations as Mount Ararat lies in the east of the country, where famously, Noah's Ark is purported to have rested. Just a few of Turkey's other claims to fame include Pamukkale, an amazing natural geographical phenomenon of limestone terraces and thermal pools which has earned it the name of Cotton Castle. Once known as Hierapolis or Sacred City, believed to have been founded by the God, Apollo, this is a World Heritage Site today with its Roman ruins and Sacred pool where you can swim amongst ancient artifacts.
The capital city, Istanbul, is probably one of the most exciting cities in the world! Architectural marvels like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar and Galata Tower dot the city,
However, holidays to Turkey are a lot more than just history and gorgeous buildings. The climate is excellent, the beaches unparalleled and the coastline simply beautiful, so it's no surprise that Turkey is one of the most fascinating and enjoyable holiday destinations on the planet. Promise!
