Holiday Destinations in Turkey

 Tourism in Turkey

Beach holidays and Blue Cruises are central to the Turkish tourism industry. Most holiday beach resorts are located along the southwestern and southern coast, called the Turkish Riviera, especially along the Mediterranean coast near Antalya. Antalya is also accepted as the tourism capital of Turkey. Major resort towns include Bodrum, Fethiye, Marmaris, Kuşadası, Çeşme, Didim and Alanya. Lots of cultural attractions elsewhere in the country include the sites of Ephesus, Troy, Pergamon, House of the Virgin Mary, Pamukkale, Hierapolis, Trabzon - where one of the oldest monasteries is the Sümela Monastery, Konya - where the poet Rumi had spent most of his life, Didyma, Church of Antioch, religious places in Mardin such as Deyrülzafarân Monastery, and the ruined cities and landscapes of Cappadocia. Diyarbakır is also an important historic city, although tourism is on a relatively small level due to waning armed conflicts. Ankara has an historic old town, and although it is not exactly a touristic city, is usually is a stop for holiday travelers who go to Cappadocia. The city enjoys an excellent cultural life too, and has several museums. The Anıtkabir is also in Ankara. It is the mausoleum of Atatürk, the founder of the Republic of Turkey.
