TURKEY – CAPPADOCIA

Cappadocia is a fairytale land in the middle of Anatolia, Turkey. It is a land in which history,  architecture, nature, and scenery have blended perfectly. Cappadocia, meaning the “Land of Beautiful Horses” in the ancient Persian tongue,  is one of the oldest  heartlands in the world—which is why everyone who comes here falls in love  with it. Which is why it loves everyone who comes here.   Cappadocia  truly is a  blend, a mixture of ancient cultures. The  land inspired  every community that settled here, and every culture that lived here has left its marks on  history, passing on messages into the future.

Hittites, Phrygians, Persians, ancient Greeks, Byzantines, Seljuk Turks, Ottomans, Armenians, and Cappadocians  have all lived in Cappadocia, building their worlds and their cultures: They carved the rocks, adorned the stones,  built churches, chapels, and temples. They built houses, streets, and cities. They put human love into every detail, even constructing homes for pigeons among the silent rocks. And this is when the rocks began  to speak to nature itself.       The region enjoys a beauty created not only by the hand  of man, but mainly by nature. Rocks composed of various minerals and metals  were eroded due to climatic conditions and movements of the earth. Valleys,  canyons, nature-sculptured rock statues, and ‘fairy chimneys’ came into being.

Museum Hotel, located on an approximately 5000m² wide and “unique” area; is composed from the restorations of old ruins and wrecks as saved originally.

The special area where Museum Hotel is located consists of many cave and stone houses that are thousands of years old.
