Must see · World heritage site · Historic Walking Area · National Park
Get a bird's eye view of the natural rock formations at Goreme National Park. As a World Heritage Site, the park's ancient structures have been protected from development. Many have been left untouched, though some were carved out and used as churches during the Roman period. More recently, some have been transformed into housing and restaurants. The park covers 40 sq km (15.4 sq mi), and while it may seem untraditional, the best way to see it is from above. Consider taking a hot air balloon ride over the entire park and, along with the landscape, you'll likely see dozens of other balloons in the distance. Ask your hotel for a suggestion on who to book with, as there are many companies throughout Cappadocia that organize these rides.

  • You are not considered visiting Cappadocia if you are not visiting this generally rich-legacy UNESCO site.  more »
  • Open-air museum, our guide said, and it really is. The important amount is sites of interest. Wear comfortable shoes and sun protection.  more »
