Goreme National Park, Goreme

(4.8/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Get a bird's eye view of the natural rock formations at Goreme National Park. As a World Heritage Site, the park's ancient structures have been protected from development. Many have been left untouched, though some were carved out and used as churches during the Roman period. More recently, some have been transformed into housing and restaurants. The park covers 40 sq km (15.4 sq mi), and while it may seem untraditional, the best way to see it is from above. Consider taking a hot air balloon ride over the entire park and, along with the landscape, you'll likely see dozens of other balloons in the distance. Ask your hotel for a suggestion on who to book with, as there are many companies throughout Cappadocia that organize these rides. Plan to visit Goreme National Park and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Goreme attractions using our Goreme travel itinerary planner.

  • In a relatively short period of time you get a good impression of how people have lived in past times including their religious experience. Must be preserved ... a nature and cultural ' wonder '.

  • Lovely to walk around ... Feels unreal.... would suggest you get a tour guide as it is not very well signposted and they can fill you in on all the other info  more »
  • From open-air museum, from Valley is spectacular unique terrain and the city combined, not to mention from the city itself. Is also staying at the hotel here was no dry cleaning here, up to-and regret.
