  • This is the largest underground city, which is very exquisite. The layers are connected by a less spacious road and require a little physical energy. The construction area below will be relatively small. Architecture is really wonderful, especially the ventilation system, because of fear of foreign poisoning, they do not drink the rain

  • The dungeon was created by the beginning of the Christian retreat from Islam. Underground city should have a taste, there are wine cellar kitchen and so on, as well as an outside the tower and so on. The dungeon is more crowded than this. Many roads need to be crouched down or crawled, so if your feet are not good or have a hidden phobia, I don't recommend you to take this trip.

  • Made from 3,500 years ago, when a lot of 20000 people seems to be lived. Live and I understand it is a city.

  • It's insane to think people used to live here their daily lives. This place is just amazing, with all the underground rooms and corridors. A word of warning though, if you have a bad back or can't bend your body and walk, you'll have a hard time exploring the really good part of this magical place. This place gets a 4 star rating because it's kind of small and the adventure ends quickly.
  • Extraordinary city carved out from stone. 8 floors done. 3 not accessible. Great ingenuity from these ancient people. Really impressed
  • Upto 12 floors craved underground by people to keep safe from attackers, 4 floors accessible to tourists. Stunning to experience and imagine how people lived more than 2 millineums ago.
  • Better than Derinkuyu IMO (at least the lighting is cooler). If you've never been to one of these before, try to get a guide because there is no printed information whatsoever. However, the guided tour might not be that great, and they charge a lot, so better go with a group. Groups, on the other hand, make the place crowded and it sucks if you end up behind one. Also, I am not sure if they have official guides, because the dudes hanging out trying to sell themselves look dubious. Better ask at the ticket office.
  • amazing...& so Creepy... not a good place for claustrophobic... but its nice... try to follow the Arrows on the wall & you will find your way easily... don't try to get lost as i did..because there is no mobile coverage ... but its an amazing experience
