  • This stunning beautiful place is included in the UNESCO list of geographical, historical and cultural attractions of the Earth. Have you ever been to the moon? To make this childhood dream fulfill, it's not necessarily to become an astronaut. Cappadocia, with its unique climate, gives everyone the opportunity to visit the "Lunar plateau". Imagine a giant plateau, adorned with craters and rocks, as if carried to the Earth from the surface of the Moon and Mars... This is Cappadocia. The best way to look at it is to rise over Cappadocia at dawn in a hot air balloon. But this place is famous not only for its beauty from above, but also for the secrets inside. After all, Cappadocia is the land of unique underground cities and churches! Local residents, who have been hiding from attacks of enemies under the ground in tunnels  that they have been making for milleniums, at the end just moved under the ground. So in Cappadocia appeared gigantic underground houses, in the ground, at the depht of ten or fifteen floors, with kitchens, bedrooms, secret passages, traps for enemies... Besides, when in this part of the Roman Empire reigned Christianity, in Cappadocia there were hundreds of monasteries and churches carved into the rocks. The walls of these incredibly mysterious churches have become natural canvases on which ancient artists painted murals depicting scenes from the Holy Scriptures. Many kilometers of vineyards and valleys with hills, untouched by human hands for hundreds of years, millennia of history and delicious local cuisine, which has become a symbiosis of Roman, Anatolian and Cappadocian cuisine, monasteries and underground cities, towns, craftsmen offering you to make a dish or bowl on potter's wheel as they did it 1000 years ago... All this is Cappadocia.
