We visited Goreme open air museum. The place was just magical with its 365 churches excavated out of the soft volcanic rock. The views from the various lookouts were stunning and it is difficult to believe that this place only accommodated 10,000 Christians. They must have spent a lot of the time worshipping, and some of the frescos were incredible.... More

It was worth for the money to see all the caves, old churches of the apostles and find yourself to timetravel 2000 years backwards. If there ever has been a doubt concerning the Apocalypths, now it came true.

I stood in a cave-hotel, in Göreme- Kapadokia in the center of region. Caves are heated, large and beatiful. Outside, the thermometers mark 1 ou negatives degrees,...inside the temperature is quite comfortable. We like so much to sleep there, and wake up next day. Enjoy, if you go there.

We returned from the R.S.D. Cappadocia cultural tour 3 days ago and on the whole found the experience to be really worthwhile and good value for money. The coach journey from Antalya to the Cappadocia region is long (320 miles) but does offer some fantastic scenery; particularly as one travels through the Taurus Mountains. Our travel guide (Gen) was most... More

Never heard of this place, how can you think that I have been there? How did this get in my email? I can't think where this came from!

Hi, i have been there with my family this April. I haven't seen anything like this anywhere. Cappadocia is one of the nature's miracle. If you are visiting this place then i suggest to also take a look around towns like urgup, avanos uchisar castle and ofcourse iklara valley. There are so many small old monasteries throughout this area. You... More

Cappadocia cave dwellings are very unusual. I have seen similar structures in other countries (can't remember where to be honest), but not so many and over such a large area. These cave structures are absolutely unusual and made by Mother Nature over a period of time. It is worth seeing once in your life time.

Visited during the early 90's while on my big "walkabout" without the aid of organised tour operators. Getting there was very easy on the very efficient Turkish bus system (I travelled the length and breadth of the country on them). Cappadocia really impressed me, something out of time and completely unchanged since the time of the Troglodytes! Local people and... More
