It is a must visit when you are at Cappadocia. Don't expect too much as most of the underground "rooms" are empty. But it is still fascinating to see how they create all the stone rooms with passage ways and stone door. It is just...More

This is an absolutely amazing underground city where you can experience the true ancient living style of Turkish people back in the day. Some places were so narrow where you pretty much have to either kneel or bend down to pass through. We went there...More

You really need a guide to get the best out of this place, unfortunately the guide I had only spoke Russian and I don't speak that language. Luckily I had read up quite a bit about the history and workings of the underground city before...More

A once in a lifetime experience thanks to our excellent guide Ihsan Gavdar (his phone number is 05383245663 if you want to organise a tour), who saw us lurking around the entrance and offered us a private tour. There are many underground cities in Cappadoccia...More

This underground city is probably the best one to visit to get the feel for claustiphobia, without the encircling crowds of visitors taking selfies. Unlike the more famous underground cities of Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, both on the main highway south of Goreme (Kapadokya), Mazi takes...More

The history behind this underground city is fascinating and it is well worth doing. However, if you like me, suffer from claustrophobia then enter with caution. The early rooms seemed higher than the last ones and in the end I had to exit quickly.
