Bodrum


Bodrum is a resort and city in Turkey, on the Aegean Sea. Bodrum is the birthplace of Herodotus, a sailing center and a favorite destination for bohemian audiences from all over the world.

Bodrum is considered the most bohemian and sophisticated resort in Turkey. It is located opposite the Greek island of Kos, and its shores are washed by the Aegean Sea. It is believed that this is a truly Greek resort with a unique climate, beaches with golden sand and a touch of history (Bodrum is the former Greek city of Halicarnassus, where the eponymous mausoleum was built, one of the seven wonders of the world). The resort is famous for its rich club life, in the evenings at discos there is nowhere to fall, the frequent winds have turned the coast into the best places for surfing. In the immediate vicinity there are many cozy bays, where the wind does not reach at all, excellent places for families with children.

There are two ways to get to the resort: from Bodrum airport (40-45 minutes on the way), or from Dalaman airport (4 hours on the way), depending on which airport is cheaper. By the way, the city airport is famous for one of the most expensive duty-free in the world, it is better to stock up on everything necessary for the flight in advance. From the Greek island of Kos from April to October, ferries go to Bodrum (approximate price in both directions - 40 euros).
Turkey loves to eat, so you won't be deprived of a choice of cafes and restaurants. The most popular are small fish restaurants run by families. Our advice: do not be lazy to walk a little further than the tourist area, there are special places where you can have a snack. In such restaurants, guests are met by the owner himself, the service is more cordial and sincere, the dishes are tastier, and the prices are slightly lower.

Alp Kaptan is a small, family-run restaurant in the city center. The cuisine is traditional for Turkish establishments: a lot of vegetables, lamb and spices, and one serving can feed several people. There are many restaurants with similar cuisine nearby, but this one is worth choosing: a few minutes to the water, portions are the most generous.

Mado is a great choice if you want to taste local sweets. Istanbul ice cream, kurabiye cookies, Turkish delight, baklava and a host of other delicious things with delicious coffee and a picturesque terrace overlooking the sea.
Modern Bodrum stands on the site of ancient Halicarnassus, thanks to which it has become almost an open-air museum. A lot of monuments of Antiquity have been preserved here, together with the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, or rather what remains of it. It stood for 19 centuries and was destroyed by an earthquake. As a result, what was left was pulled apart piece by piece, leaving solid ruins. But nevertheless, it is great to see the remains of the legendary history and see with your own eyes confirmation of the existence of this Wonder of the World.
