There are several signature tourist spots in Turkey, not to mention the ones.
1. Turkey Hagia Sophia
It is probably the most famous tourist attraction in Turkey and one of the oldest buildings in the world. In the 6th century, the Byzantine Emperor Justinian built the building as an Orthodox church, which was later converted into a mosque. It is currently being operated as a museum. Its remarkable architecture and Byzantine and Muslim ornaments captivate visitors.
After the conversion to the mosque, many of the pictures of Jesus Christ painted on the marble walls were removed, but the paintings were restored 500 years later. As a result, the images of Jesus Christ become very vague. But new rules were introduced in the establishment to preserve the history of the two later religions. Currently, it is a criminal offense to use the main part of the installation or hall for religious purposes, which applies to both Muslims and Christians.
2. Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmed Mosque)
You can walk from Hagia Sophia to another captivating architecture in Turkey – the Blue Mosque. The magnificent architecture of the city of Istanbul and the Sultan Ahmed Mosque or Blue Mosque with 6 minarets fascinate from the outside. It is another tourist attraction in Turkey.
This mosque was built in 1809-1818. It contains the tomb of the founder. Inside the mosque, there are 20,000 different types of blue tiles on the high ceiling, which is why the mosque is called the Blue Mosque.
One of the most popular places in Turkey is Ephesus, located near Selkak. Istanbul or Ankara, no matter where you live, is quite far from your location. So it is better to fly directly. Some of the best Greek and Roman ruins in the world are preserved here.
The city of Ephesus, one of the Seventh Wonders of the Ancient World, was once famous for the Temple of Artemis. The temple has earned a reputation for its remarkable architecture. Some of the attractions in Ephesus are the Library of Celsius and the Temple of Hadrian and the Ancient Theater.
There are also the ancient temple of Artemis, the Isa Bay Mosque on the hill, the Ottoman estate, the Grand Castle, the building of the Virgin Mary, and many more old historic buildings.
4. Cappadocia, Turkey
It is famous for its natural rocks and unique historical artefacts that were born in the volcanic eruption during the Mossen period. This underground city was opened to tourists long ago.
The biggest tourist attraction in Cappadocia is the balloon tour. There are more expensive balloons in Bangladeshi rupees starting from 6 thousand rupees. However, the travel experience is more or less the same in all of them. Whatever the cost, who wouldn’t love to float a thousand feet above the surface for an hour and a half and see the enchanting natural beauty?
There are also some more interesting places in Turkey – Nimrod’s Mountains, Troy, Bodrum Castle, Pamukale, Patara Beach, Espendos Theater, Allodenis, Basilica Cistern etc.
Have a nice trip to Turkey!
