Mount Nemrut National Park / Adıyaman
The Mountain with its height is a unique cultural heritage not only for our country but for the whole world. It is precisely for this reason that UNESCO has not remained indifferent to Mount Nemrut and has included it in the list of world cultural heritage. In other words, the statue of Nemrut, which is described as the eighth wonder of the world, is the most important reason for adding it to this list. There is an inscription next to the statue. There are also mausoleums along with the inscriptions.
King Rock Tombs / Amasya
Amasya, the city whose every street smells of history, hosted both Ottoman and pre-Ottoman civilizations. The King’s Rock Tombs, one of the most well-known centers in its history, were carved into limestone rocks extending vertically like a flat wall on the skirts of Amasya Castle.

Gölyazı Village is a small fishing village located on the shores of Uluabat Lake in Bursa’s Nilüfer District. Is there such a place in Turkey with its landscape and environmental structure? Although it has a beauty that makes one say, many people are not aware of its existence. Even certain parts of Bursa do not even know that this place is in Bursa. We wanted to introduce you to this village more closely by exchanging ideas with our writers in Bursa.
Locals love to fish from seven to seventy, usually on weekends. As we mentioned at the beginning, this is a small fishing village. In this village, both men and women are fishing, and you can come across women sitting on the street and knitting fishing nets. And I would especially like to point out that the people of the village are friendly, very warm-blooded and hospitable.
