Cappadocia is the historic area with unique rock site located in the center of the Anatolian Region of Turkey. Thies region is a result of the vulcanic eruptions occurred in Erciyes, Hasandag and Gulludag, in the region was formed a large tableland from the vulcanic tufas and together with the erosion of the Kizilirmak river and wind over ten thausands of years there appeared the chimney rocks which are a wonder of the nature. Turkish heritage is located in Goreme – a village in the heart of Cappadocia. Long, long ago Cappadocia was inhabited by Christians who also carved thousands of cave churches, chapels and monasteries out of the rock. Many of these churches were decorated with frescoes of medieval saints whose ghostly images still gaze down from the walls. In the 21st century these ancient churches make some of the most remarkable sights for visitors. Goreme and the Cappadocia region is easily accessible from all parts of Turkey.
