From Konya we continued our exploration by going towards Cappadocia, a historical and antique area in Turkey. In Turkish “Kappadokya”. Cappadocia is a historical region in Anatolia. It is very popular for tourists and the most popular experience tourists try is the “hot-air ballooning” which I hate to say we haven’t experienced when visiting Cappadocia. And I regret it. If you go there, do try it!
Cappadocia is the place where you look all around you and have no words left. Just like that. Nothing compares to the landscapes of Cappadocia, its rock sights, Goreme Park. It’s so easy to fall in love with it, love at first sight! It’s a different world, a different culture, beautifully different.
Must see in Cappadocia
Almost every landmark in Cappadocia belongs to UNESCO. “The father, mother and the child” landscape as some cultures call it or “Paşabaǧ”as Turkish people call is a must see. Image it’s a family of nature itself. These mushroom shaped rocks sit in Avanos-Goreme Road.
Goreme Park – don’t imagine it’s like any of the other Parks you’ve seen so far. It’s an open-air rock park with caves.
Must taste in Cappadocia
Turkish delight, you have to try – while climbing your way into Cappadocia you would see the Turkish locals selling and wanting to negotiate with you in order to buy a pack of colorful Turkish delight.
