Cappadocia (Kapadokya) – The land of Beautiful horses

Cappadocia “Kapadokya” or the land of the beautiful horses is definitely one of my favourite places in Turkey. The Volcanic rock formations give the landscape a very original and uniques personality that you cannot find anywhere else. On your visit to Cappadocia don’t forget to visit at least one of the fascinating underground cities, go on a hot air balloon ride and prepare to be amazed, but most importantly stay in a cave hotel to have the full experience.
