From Halicarnassos to Bodrum…
When you reach the top of the hill,
You will see Bodrum
Don’t you think you will return as you came
Those who came before you
Left their heart and mind in Bodrum
says the famous poet of Turkey, Cevat Sakir Kabaagacli, widely known as the ‘Halicarnassos Fisherman’.
Bodrum has a history of 5000 years and has been home to several civilisations. It is the birthplace of Heredot, and also the home of the King Maussollos’s tomb, which is accepted as one of the Seven Wonders of the World (placed in British Museum in 19th century).
The ‘Antique Theater’ built BC IV. Century, has survived until today and has been the stage for special concerts.
Famous Bodrum castle, with its magnificient view and exceptional architecture, has been built by the knights of Rodos. Today it welcomes millions of visitors as the biggest Underwater Archaeological Museum. There is also a special section which displays the life of the Caria Princess Ada.
Bodrum’s unique Gullets, handmade boats made of wood, its’ sandals, jewelery made of glass and its exceptional mediterrenean cuisine became worldwide famous. The amateur gullet yacht races, blue voyages and colourful nightlife transformed this town into a tourism heaven. Additionally, Bodrum is famous with its fresh air, exceptionally healthy herbs, olive and mandarin trees.
The cradle of Civilisations…
Surrounded by sea three different types of seas, Anatolia, as a cultural mosaic, connects Asia and Europe together by combining different cultures and languages. From very early on in history, many different civilisations were born on these territory and each one of them has left a rich culture behind them.
All the historical materpieces of different cultures like Hittit, Urartu, Phrygia, Caria, Lidia, Ionia, Troy, Bizantium, Seljuk empire and Ottoman empire is the heart of the Turkey’s Cultural tourism. Capadocia, Istanbul, Safranbolu, Bogazköy, Nemrut Mountain, Xanthos, Letoon, Divrigi Ulu Mosque and Darüssifa, Troian Archeaulogical City belong to the World Inheritance List as cultural wonders, whereas Pamukkale and Göreme-Capadoccia are also natural wonders.
