Renowned as one of the most beautiful buildings in the world is the spellbinding Byzantine glory of the Aya Sofya Museum. Originally a Greek Orthodox church for a thousand years, then a mosque for five hundred and now a secular museum, this stunning Byzantine building is a must-see for any visitor to Turkey.
One of Turkey’s most popular tourist attractions is the Pamukkale. The name Pamukkale means “Cotton Castle” and refers to the stunning white terraces of calcium-rich warm waters spring up from the earth and cascade over low cliffs, forming the crisp, snow-like landscape. This is one of the most epic places to visit in Turkey. Spend an afternoon soaking, splashing and relaxing in these unique springs.
Certainly one of Turkey’s most well-known destinations, the image of hot air balloons gliding over the magical landscape of Cappadocia’s fairy chimneys has become an icon. The area stands on a unique landscape of volcanic rock, making Cappadocia a very distinctive ancient site. Do not forget to take the hot air balloon tour to see this one-of-a-kind site from the top as it is one of the top things to do in Cappadocia.
