How will you reach the place?
Although, it still depends on from where you want to reach at the Cappadocia. But, there are direct flights from Istanbul to Kayseri in Cappadocia that would take around 1.5 hours. Moreover, you can also travel by bus overnight which will take around 11 hours.
Through whichever medium you reach Cappadocia, never miss doing these things there!
Underground cities are beneath Cappadocia’s rock formations and because of its winery, shafts, cave churches, and many other locations, the place stands on the first in the list that you should visit. It’s been believed that there were 10,000 people that used to stay to escape the winter and wild animals here. With the time passes, they became the place for Christians to hide & survive. The architectural masterpiece could amaze anyone and it is definitely unbelievable to imagine the creative architecture without efficient tools & even electricity.
