Here are some of the many places you can visit in Turkey:

Aya Sofya

Well known as one of the most beautiful buildings in the world, the magnificent Byzantine glory of the Aya Sofya Museum (Hagia Sophia) is the top thing for you to do when visiting Turkey.

The exterior of the building is rimmed with delicate minarets which were added after the vast Ottoman conquest. On the other hand, the sumptuous and cavernous frescoed interior is a reminder of the grand power and might of old Constantinople. The famed monument of Aya Sofya is a must-visit when you are in the city of Istanbul or just visiting Turkey.


The mighty ruins of Ephesus are one of the best places to visit for history buffs. Turkey has a rich history from different empires and i9nvasions.

The rock valley of Cappadocia is surreal and a photographer's dream. With cliff ridges, hillcrest, and a lush green valley, Cappadocia is one of the best places for a perfect panoramic shot of the Mediterranean. The place is filled with several weirdly-shaped rocks and cliff edges which are formed from excessive wind and water erosion of rocks.

If you are not feeling like a hike, you can also indulge in a hot-air balloon ride and get the best view of Cappadocia. If the beautiful horizon is not enough for you to take the adventurous ride, other things that you can see from the balloon are the various frescoed rock-cut churches of the Byzantine era. These churches were created when Cappadocia was an important site for early Christians.

Topkapi Palace

The Topkapi palace takes you to the beautiful and majestic world of the sultans. The palace is the place where the Ottoman Era carved its empire in Turkey and later expanded it towards Europe and down to the Middle East and Africa.

One of the world's best natural wonders is located in Turkey. The pure white travertine terraces of Pamukkale ("Cotton Castle" in English) flow down the slopes of the snowfields amid a green landscape. The out-of-the-world white travertine terraces of Pamukkale are highlighted by the roman Hierapolis ruins.

Mount Nemrut

The top sightseeing area in East turkey is the summit of Mount Nemrut. There are several mammoth stone statues left behind in a weird place. It is one of the most peculiar archaeological sites in Turkey.

The stone statues in the area are of long-forgotten gods who stared out from the summit. The barren mountaintop has an eerie ambiance and you can watch the statues loom out of the dark at sunrise every day.


At the border of turkey and Armenia lies a secluded and deserted establishment of Ani. It used to be a stop for traders on the Silk Road. The city was once the capital of Armenia and was raided by the Mongols in the 14th century which marked its end. There were also natural causes like earthquakes that forced the settlement out of Ani.

The place is in ruins and the beautiful bricks of Ani still crumble away from the wind. The place is surrounded by tall grass fields and you can find the Church of the Redeemer or the Church of St. Gregory, with their elaborate stone masonry and fresco remnants still visible.


Just south of the city of Antalya lies the beautiful and vast Roman Theatre of Aspendos. The place was used to celebrate the pomp and ceremony of Marcus Aurelius’ coronation. It is considered the finest surviving example of the classical age of theatre and is one of the star antique attractions of the world.
