Turkey is known for its large number of historical sights. So of the Seven Wonders of the world, two are located in this country-the Temple of Artemis and the Mausoleum in Halicarnassus.

Here you can see the majestic mountains of Kemer, the green hills of Marmaris, the pine forests of Antalya, the vast plains of Belek, the stunningly beautiful beaches of Side, the clear blue waters of Alanya and the amazing Martian landscapes of Cappadocia.
