Cappadocia is in Nevşehir. It is a place where nature and history are intertwined. It is one of nature’s most unique masterpieces. Over time, the layers formed by the lava erupted by Erciyes, Hasandağı and Göllüdağ millions of years ago formed fairy chimneys. In Cappadocia, whose history dates back to the Hittites, people built houses and dovecotes by carving the inside of fairy chimneys. These remnants of life have survived to the present day.
Cappadocia also means ‘Land of Beautiful Horses’.
There are many places to see in Cappadocia. For example, Göreme, Uçhisar, Avanos, Ortahisar and Ürgüp are the most visited places.
One of the most interesting aspects of Cappadocia is the balloon tours. Here, tourists have the opportunity to see the unique view of Cappadocia from the sky with huge hot air balloons. Balloon tours are held very early in the morning. The reason for this is that the balloons cannot fly as the air temperature increases. Balloons go up to about 1000 meters and balloon tours take about an hour and a half.
There are many accommodation opportunities in Cappadocia, including balloon tours.
Cappadocia, the Land of Beautiful Horses, welcomes millions of domestic and foreign tourists every year.
