Cappadocia – an area in the center of Turkey, with unique geological formations. It reminded me the landscape in Byzantine and Russian icons. Early Christians, fleeing persecution, have settled there, digging in the soft limestone hidden cells, churches and underground “cave cities”. In a place called Derinkuyu, the underground system is eighth levels deep.

Pamukkale looks as the North Pole on photographs, notwithstanding the fact that the people are dressed in summer clothes. The hills, seemingly covered with ice, appear so because of springs of water extremely rich in calcium.

Our last stop in Turkey is Ephesus – ruins of an ancient Greek city, on the western coast near Izmir. Turkey has the best preserved sites of the ancient Greek civilization.
