Learn About Cappadocia
The breathtaking landscape of the Cappadocia region is the product of over 60 million years of history. The region was formed due in part to the irregular erosion of volcanic ash across the landscape.
Human settlement at the Cappadocia region dates back to the Paleolithic era. The lands have been one of the most important centers of Christianity in the later periods. Houses and churches carved into the caves and rocks turned the region into a huge heaven for Christians escaping from the dominance of the Roman Empire. Cappadocia is a place where nature and history fuse and integrate and is was one of the important junctions of the Silk Road.
The region spent a period without trouble subsequent times under the Ottoman Empire. The last Christians in the region migrated from Cappadocia due to the exchange of Treaty of Lausanne in 1924-26, leaving beautiful architectural examples behind.
When it comes to people, Cappadocia was once the homeland of the Hittite power and after Hitit fell, it was ruled by many kingdoms such as Persians, Romans, Arabs, Byzantines, Seljuks, Ottomans, and now Turks. Their stories are carved into Cappadocia’s surreal landscape.

It takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to fly to Cappadocia from Istanbul. Cappadocia has two airports: Nevsehir Kapadokya (NAV) and Kayseri Erkilet (ASR). There are direct flights daily from Istanbul Airport (IST) or Sabiha Gokcen (SAW) to either airport in Cappadocia. Nevsehir is closer to the main towns of Göreme and Urgup but Kayseri is a larger airport. Several companies run nightly buses from Istanbul to Cappadocia, including Metro Turizm and Nevşehir Seyahat. This is the cheapest way to go but it’s also the longest, it takes around 10 hours to get to Cappadocia.
