Cappadocia would not have been that delightful place that attracts thousands of tourists every year, if not for the numerous natural disasters that began their violent activity in this area more than 60 million years ago. Initially, the mobility of tectonic plates provoked faults in the earth's crust, then volcanoes woke up, as a result of which the entire surface was covered with a thick layer of volcanic tuff. Time, water, and wind carved out of the soft rock all the splendor that we can admire today: stone pillars and mushrooms, multi-colored valleys, and canyons. Among the natural beauties, man-made structures also find their place.
Surprisingly, these, at first glance, not suitable for living lands served as a home and protection for more than one generation of people. Living quarters, temples, monasteries were carved into the rocks. And the whole world is talking about underground cities going many kilometers down. In the 1st century BC, the first Christians took refuge in them from the pagans.
The best way to admire the alien landscape is to book a Hot air balloon in Cappadocia. The cost of a flight in 2021 per person is on average from €100, but the emotions received are definitely worth the money spent.
Goreme is a small town that is considered the tourist center of the region and the National Historical and Natural Park. Travelers who decide to spend the weekend or their entire vacation here can book inexpensively an apartment in one of the hotels nestled in the rocks, where, in the evening, after long promenades, you can visit the classic Turkish bath in Cappadocia. According to tourists, the best Hamam in Goreme is Kelebek Hamam & Spa.
People began to visit public baths from ancient times, but it was during the Ottoman Empire that this activity became a kind of ritual, during which not only the body but also the soul was cleansed. The Hamam has certain differences from, for example, the equally popular Finnish sauna.
The premises are built in a traditional oriental style - they are spacious, bright, with a domed ceiling. Interior decoration only in marble. Air temperature no more than 55C, humidity should be 100%. Men and women should wash in different rooms, although there are exceptions to the rule in tourist options. But being in the nude is forbidden for everyone, so towels or sheets are always given at the entrance.
The beneficial properties of a Turkish bath Hamam in Cappadocia are as follows:
This complex is a true art of preserving and prolonging beauty and youth. A regular visit to the steam room will help strengthen the immune system, improve blood circulation, skin condition and speed up metabolism.
