Short description of the tour

Day 1:

Istanbul (formerly Constantinople) is the largest city in Turkey and its main port. Istanbul is the only city in the world that is located in two parts of the world at once - Europe and Asia. This is an ancient metropolis, which throughout its history was the capital of three great empires: Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman. All this has turned Istanbul into one of the most exciting cities in the world with a unique cultural and historical heritage.

We will start our tour at the Hippodrome Square - the main square of Istanbul, on which there are several columns and obelisks from the Byzantine era. Then we will go to the main mosque of Istanbul, which has six minarets - the Blue Mosque. A visit to the Topkapi Palace will allow you to get to know the life and customs of the eastern rulers - the sultans.  Let's not ignore the cradle of all Christianity - Hagia Sophia. It was a temple, it was rebuilt into a mosque, and now a museum is open here. Then Bosphorus tour and dinner.  After the Bosporus, we head to the airport and fly to the city of Kaiser. Our guide will meet you at the Kaysera airport.

Day 2:

One of the amazing places in Turkey is an area located in central Anatolia called Cappadocia. In a relatively small area there is a large number of mountains that have an unusual shape - in the form of stone mushrooms. This is due to the result of volcanic eruptions that acted in this area millions of years ago. Also, Cappadocia became famous for its underground cities, which were created in the first millennium BC, and large cave monasteries dating back to the period of early Christianity. About 350 Christian churches have survived in Cappadocia, which mainly date back to the 9th-11th centuries AD. Although there are older ones. All of them are carved right into the rocks, and their decoration does not strike with luxury or size. In some temples, the painting is applied directly to the bare walls
During the trip, you will learn about the history, culture and traditions of the Turks.
