PLACES TO VISIT IN ANTALYA

Old city of Kaleiçi in Antalya

  • Antalya is the largest resort city in the south of the Republic of Turkey. It annually attracts millions of tourists from all over the world. Bright, advanced, with countless luxury hotels, shops, cafes and restaurants, and most importantly - on the cleanest shores washed by the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea, you can spend an unforgettable vacation.
  • Antalya has a huge selection of diverse and interesting sights, but it’s worth starting your acquaintance with that part of the city from which it all began, which has preserved its ancient atmosphere and remembers its great history, dating back many centuries into the past - from the Kaleichi district, which means “ inside the fortress.
  • The high walls that once protected the port from enemy attacks for two thousand years managed to save the town in its almost original form. But, unfortunately, only fragments of them remained.
  • The main monument of ancient architecture has also been preserved - Hadrian's Gate - a marble triumphal arch with columns, erected in honor of the Roman emperor. It serves as a kind of portal separating the old quarter from the modern world. One has only to walk under it, as you find yourself in a completely different Turkey with narrow streets, paved roads, cozy houses and buildings that are considered the cultural heritage of the country, such as the Kesik Minaret, the Murat Pasha Mosque built in the 16th century and the house of Kemal Ataturk.
  • Hidirlik Tower is another greeting from the past, left over from the gladiators. The opinions of historians about the purpose of the brick structure, 14 meters high, differed. Some argue that it was a lighthouse, others attributed a defensive function, and still others believe that water supplies were stored there. Whatever it was, but the Hidirlik Tower is located on a hill, which offers a beautiful panoramic view of the Kaleiçi port and the entire Antalya coast.

Antalya clock tower in the old town

  • Saat Kulesi - the clock tower of Antalya - a historical landmark, a calling card and a symbol of the city, it is she who is most often depicted on guidebooks, stamps and postcards. The tower is located on Kalekapysi Square, not far from the entrance to the old Kaleiçi quarter and is considered a favorite and unchanging meeting place among both locals and tourists.
  • The historical reference takes us to the 19th century. Saat Kulesi was built in 1901, after the German Emperor Wilhelm II made a friendly gift to the Turkish Sultan Abdul Hamid in the form of a batch of facade clocks. Similar clock towers can be found in other cities of Turkey, for example, in Kemer.
  • The exact use of the tower is still unknown. Some historians are of the opinion that it was built specifically for the dial, others believe that it was part of the fortifications.
  • To this day, the structure has been preserved almost unchanged: a two-tier structure, with a total height of 14 meters. The lower part is in the form of a pentagon, made of unhewn stone and has a rather rough appearance. The upper part is the exact opposite - quadrangular, even, made of processed stone. Once the roof was decorated with an iron dome, but it was demolished by a strong hurricane, and a simple masonry with teeth appeared instead. The clock has also undergone changes, until 1974 it was decorated with figures of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary, but the minute and second hands still show the exact time.

Yivli Minaret

  • Yivli Minaret can be seen from anywhere in the city. This is the oldest architectural monument of Muslim culture and a symbol of victory in the Mediterranean war. The tower is more than 800 years old and during this time its appearance has not changed much and fully corresponds to the name - “corrugated”, as it was intended by the Sultan of Key-Kubad Ala-ad-Din, who erected it. The height is 38 meters, the middle tier consists of 8 columns interconnected, the roof is crowned with a pointed dome, inside the building there is a spiral staircase and 90 steps. In some places, the blue brick mosaic crumbled on the facade, revealing the masonry to the eyes of the guests, but this only endows the building with the spirit of antiquity and gives a certain charm.
  • Initially, the Yivli minaret was attached to the walls of the Byzantine church, which was later converted into a mosque and has not survived to this day. The new building was built in 1372 by the architect Balaban Tavashi using the remaining antique fragments. During a sightseeing tour of Antalya, tourists can visit the oldest mosque, following simple rules. First of all, they relate to appearance - no shorts and short-sleeved T-shirts, clothes should be of a restrained style, covering parts of the body as much as possible; women's heads should be covered with a scarf; shoes must be removed before entering.
  • Do not go inside during prayer. In the mosque itself, it is worth moving slowly, talking quietly; photography is not prohibited, but this rule does not apply to people - photographing Muslim women is prohibited, and a man should be asked for permission; the phone must be turned off.
  • In combination with these attractions, you can visit the mausoleums of Nigar Khatun and Zindzhirkyran and the Mevlevi house - the order of dervishes - an exhibition hall, the expositions of which present manuscripts, household items, musical, looms and tapestries.

Mount Tunektepe

  • Mount Tünektepe is located just 15 kilometers from the center of Antalya. This relatively small hill, overgrown with coniferous forests, only 605 meters above sea level, is considered the best viewing platform, which offers breathtaking views of the city, the azure sea, merging with the horizon and the silhouette of the Toros mountain range, shrouded in a barely noticeable haze.
  • It is best to go on such a trip in clear, cloudless weather, so that nothing would prevent you from enjoying nature and sights.
  • More recently, it was possible to get to the top point on foot or by car.
  • Since 2017, the cable car has been operating, with a length of 1706 meters.
  • Although this project was conceived and approved back in 1986, construction began only in 2013, and after 4 years the long-awaited opening took place.
  • Funicular cabins with panoramic, tinted windows can accommodate 6-8 people, travel time is only 10 minutes.
  • The top of the mountain meets with "tasty" air, saturated with the aroma of pines, refreshing coolness and a light breeze, you should take this into account when going on an excursion and take a light windbreaker or sweater with you.

A very popular and unusual place 1 hour is equal to one circle, during which time you can enjoy ice cream, drink a cup of coffee and just relax in a relaxed atmosphere.

Waterfall (Karpuzkaldiran) Lower Duden

  • During a sightseeing tour of Antalya, guests are sure to get acquainted with the pearl of the city - Duden waterfalls. Contrary to the common name and the fact that they are formed by one river, these are two completely different water slopes, moreover, they are separated from each other by a distance of 15 kilometers.
  • Lower Duden, 45 meters high, is located in the park of the same name in the Lara district, the entrance to the park area is free. This is the highest freshwater waterfall in the world, flowing into the open sea. You can admire it both from the observation deck and from the sea, and, according to tourists, it is from yachts and ships passing by that a picturesque view of it opens up, when powerful streams, falling with a deafening roar, form a lush cloud of millions of tiny particles of water below. dust. During the day, its constant companion is a rainbow, at night the cascade is decorated with multi-colored lights.
  • Another name for the Lower Duden waterfall is Karpuzkaldyran, which means “jumping watermelon” in Turkish. According to one version, the full-flowing river overflowed its banks and washed away the melon that grew nearby. Another version says that the locals floated the striped berry along the river, but did not always manage to catch it.
  • Be that as it may, you should definitely see this natural attraction with your own eyes, and then take a walk along the shady alleys of the park, relax in a cozy cafe, listening to the sound of falling water and enjoying aromatic coffee.

Upper Duden Waterfall

  • 10 kilometers from the center of Antalya, in the beautiful and well-groomed Shelilis Park, in the Varsak district, there is the first waterfall formed by the Duden River - the Upper Duden Falls, 27 meters high and over 600 years old.
  • The water artery itself is also amazing, originating from the karst sources of the Taurus. Before the construction of the hydroelectric power station in 1962, it either went into underground caves, or emerged and flowed to the surface. Now the artificially created channel has formed a single channel.
  • At the very source, the flow of the river is calm and even lazy, but after some 100 meters it begins to gain strength, the first rapids appear, and in the end it falls off the cliff with a roar.
  • The overall picture is fascinating: the silver jets of water flowing into the emerald lake look in contrast against the background of green lianas, coniferous and deciduous trees that are planted in the park area. There is also a Platan, which is 700 years old, and tombs and sarcophagi of the 2nd-3rd centuries are carved into the rocks.
  • The main secret of this attraction is that you can admire it both from the observation deck and caves and grottoes hidden by the waterfall itself. It is standing there, inside you feel all the strength and power of this natural phenomenon. However, you need to be careful because in the floor of the cave there are growths that look like stalagmites. The locals have a belief that if you tie these “needles” with a thread and make a wish, while looking at the sky seen in the gap of the stone ceiling, it will certainly come true.
