Cappadocia…a Mystical Gem in Central Turkey

A visit to Turkey isn’t complete without stepping back in time in the captivating Cappadocia region.  Formed by volcanic activity over millions of years, this area boasts unusual rock formations with numerous cave dwellings and never-ending vistas.

A must-see is the open-air museum of Goreme with its rock churches housing beautiful frescoes.  Before Christianity was ousted, monks and nuns co-existed and worshipped in this valley.  Another valley aptly name “Imagination Valley” sparks your imagination with its numerous and varied rock shapes.  Several underground cities can also be explored. Their intricate tunnels and rooms clearly depict how inhabitants had to elude their enemies.

An exciting and popular way to view Cappadocia is by hot air balloon.  You can also explore by horseback.  Roads are in good shape and well marked, making self-drive exploration easy for more independent travelers.  Hotels are plentiful, with many offering cave rooms providing authentic and unusual stays.

The Cappadocia region is full of artisans specializing in rug-making, ceramics and jewelry.  If you want to do some serious shopping, you will be at the source for many of Turkey’s finest goods
