Holidays in Turkey, Alanya

The resort is located on the Mediterranean coast, but its undoubted plus is that the nearest airport in the city of Antalya is only 140 km long. The city dates back to the times of the ancient Greeks, who built Alanya. True, originally the city was called the Caracession and was a haven of corsairs, which plundered the Mediterranean ships. With the arrival of the Romans, the city was completely cleared of pirates and given into the possession of Cleopatra. A little later, Alanya became part of the Byzantine Empire.

From these empires the city inherited an amazing architecture, such as, for example, a 13th-century fortress erected here on the orders of Sultan Kay-Kubad. Another local attraction — the ancient museum — is located directly under the open sky. From here, vacationers have a wonderful panorama of the boundless Mediterranean Sea.

Even in winter, the temperature does not fall below +15 degrees. The season for rest opens early enough — from the end of April and lasts until late autumn. The temperature is +35 degrees during the beach season in Alanya — a common thing.
