Visit Goreme - Best of Goreme
In a blanket of the historic region of Turkey, occupying a little space in the Cappadocia region is the petite town of Goreme flaunting its natural rock formations and fabulous fairy chimneys. Gorgeous Goreme is a village neatly nestled in a valley surrounded by barren hills in a charming honey complexion.
The major highlights of the city are its natural rock formations which are a result of weathering and erosion, the fairy Chimneys which are a result of incomplete erosion. Interestingly, the town was called by several names in the beginning and was given the name 'Goreme' only when it was referred to as the center of tourism in the region of Cappadocia.
As Christianity was once the dominant religion the region followed you will find plenty of beautiful churches cut out of rock at various turns in the city. These churches belong to the 10th and 11th century.
In 1985 the Goreme National Park was added to the UNESCO world Heritage list. Goreme is an excellent getaway from the daily routine and an ideal Turkey destination to sample the local wines and delicious cuisines. The city although surrounded by stone is very entertaining with a bunch of attractions and a slice of Turkey.
