Tale of Winter in Capadokya

Each settlement in Cappadocia has witnessed different civilizations. Cappadocia that hosted Hittite, Assyrian, Persian, Phrygian, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman means Katpatuka-'Land of Beautiful Horses' in Persian. The region was called later Cappadocia in Greek.

Cappadocia region was formed by the explosion of Güllüdağ, Hasandağı and Erciyes volcanoes thousands of years ago. The fairy chimneys with or without caps have been formed from burnt or melted rocks of the volcanic mountains, ash layers and lava by the effect of wind and rain. These unique formations take Cappadocia to eternity.

Although the outer parts of the fairy chimneys were formed by nature, the people living here built castles, underground cities and churches by carving the interior of the fairy chimneys to protect themselves. In these structures, unique textures and frescoes are seen.

These churches in Cappadocia have led Turkey to become an important cultural and religious center in the world.

You must see Cappadocia to watch the harmony of the colorful balloons, to witness lace-like valleys among the vineyards in the villages, to discover and experience the infinite beauty.
