Like in A Fairy-Tale: Cappadocia

23 July 2021 Life in Turkey

Cappadocia is a historical and beautiful region of central Turkey famous for its fairy-tale landscape, cave houses, extraordinary rock formations and hundreds of hot air balloons that float in the sky every morning at sunrise.

There are also so many great hiking trails in Cappadocia that it will take you at least a week to explore all the various hiking trails in the area. You can have touring all the hiking trails, exploring ancient valleys and fascinated by hot air balloons. For travelers, flying direct to Cappadocia from Istanbul is a very easy and popular option.

Flight time is less than 1.5 hours, and you can find Turkish Airlines and Pegasus flights almost every day. Known as Hatti in the Late Bronze Age, Cappadocia was the homeland of the Hattusha-centered Hittite power. After the collapse of the Hittite Empire, with the decline of the Syro-Cappadocians who were defeated by the Lydian king Karun in the 6th century BC, Cappadocia was ruled by a kind of feudal aristocracy that lived in strongholds. the peasants were in a servile state, which made them later prone to foreign slavery.

It was included in the third Persian satrapy in the division established by Darius, but continued to be ruled by its own rulers, none of them seemingly superior over the whole country, and more or less tributaries of the Great King.

As we said above, the panoramic view of the dozens of hot air balloons stretching across the deep valleys in Cappadocia is iconic and one of the most popular balloon tours in the world – but there's more to Cappadocia than hot air balloons, more than carpet. stores and Instagram roofs. it is also home to sprawling underground cities, numerous viewpoints, open-air museums and archaeological sites.

Most of the hotels are in Göreme, Ürgüp and Uçhisar, but the best place to stay in Cappadocia is probably Göreme, where there are many tour companies, markets, restaurants and hotels. It's also centrally located, which means you can easily enter a variety of Cappadocia landmarks, but it's easy to get around the city on foot so you can pop out for dinner or lunch.
