The excursion is designed for two days. In the first of them you have to visit several places. The initial stage of the trip to Demre-Myra-Kekova and Pamukkale from Side 2 days - St. Nicholas Church, which was built in the fourth century. It was in it that Nicholas the Wonderworker was the archbishop. There is also a sarcophagus in which he was buried (so the legend says). The remains of the saint were reburied in Bari in the 11th century by pirates and monks from the Greek monastery of Athos, where they are kept today in one of the temples. It should be noted that the excavations, as well as the restoration of the church, have not yet been completed.

The Ruins of the World is the second location that a group of tourists will visit. The main attraction is the amphitheater. The huge building could initially accommodate about thirteen thousand spectators. Amazes the imagination and the necropolis. Many secrets are hidden in the Lycian rock tombs. The inhabitants of this area believed that if the dead were buried at a height, in the rocks, they would quickly be transported to the world of the dead.

The last object for inspection will be a walk on a specially equipped boat - the destination is Kekova - the sunken city. It was built on an island and was a prosperous settlement for several centuries. The reason for the burial under the water column was a strong earthquake. At the moment, the surviving part of the island is uninhabited, and the restoration of buildings has not been carried out. In a special window in the bottom of the vessel, you can see the structures located on the seabed.

Second day of excursion Demre-Myra-Kekova and Pamukkale from Side 2 days - visit to the historical complex, considered the pearl of the country and the eighth wonder of the world. There are seventeen springs in the Cotton Castle (as this area is also called). Their thermal water has a different mineral composition and temperature. You will discover stunning snow-white terraces called travertines. Over many millennia, they were formed from mineral deposits and turned into something reminiscent of cotton plantations (especially when viewed from afar) and there will be an opportunity to swim in the Cleopatra pool (the water in it is 36 degrees). According to legend, the great queen owes him her youth and amazing beauty. In fact, this pond contains really healthy water, which has a beneficial effect on the condition of various organs and body systems, and also improves skin condition.
