Tazi canyon story

History of the area. Excursion to Tazi Canyon from Side is not limited to visiting one observation deck. An active program begins in the village of Beshkonak, where tourists, having transferred to powerful jeeps, set off to get to know the beauties of the Koprulu protected area and its sights, which have become available for visiting since 1973.

The area itself has a history that goes back many centuries to the past, when the Koprucay river, then called Eurymedon, broke through a crevice in the rocks with its full-flowing, strong current, 14 kilometers long and 100 meters wide, thereby forming two the shores, interconnected by the Oluk stone bridge, built in the 2nd century BC. the Romans. The bridge was repeatedly destroyed, rebuilt, reconstructed, but in the end, today you can not only look at the monument of antiquity, but also cross it to the other side to continue the walk.

Selge Antique City

There is another memorable place 11 kilometers from Oluk, where you can rarely meet crowds of tourists. Having passed through the masonry of the bridge, the narrow road leads further, opening up fantastic panoramic views of mountain landscapes, and then dives into the very thicket of the dense forest, and behind it it is the ancient city of Selge, once the most densely populated and strategically important settlement of the ancient Pisidia, with developed trade and agrarian business. It was here that the 5th century BC. minted the first coin. Its fertile land was the object of desire of many peoples who tried to conquer the impregnable city built on a hill 1300 meters above sea level. However, the locals managed to maintain their independence for more than 3 centuries.

Now there is little left of its former power: a theater for 10 thousand spectators, the remains of the temples of Zeus and Artemis, and barrels for storing water.

Adam Kayalar story

But a little further begins what is definitely worth paying attention to - a place called Adam Kayalar, translated from Turkish as "rock people". Huge stone giants are involuntarily associated with the petrified army that stands guard at the entrance to the ancient city.
