Have a cup of tea in the Kubbeli Saloon under its six domes surrounded by the splendid banded columns of Carrara marble and enlightened by the turquoise circular windows on the roof, feel that Turkey is still living in its inner splendour, come to Turkey and find out that this country has many things to show you and to teach you.

Two million years ago the active volcanoes of Erciyes, Melendiz and Hasan erupted and the results of lavas subsequent layers flooded by rains and rivers created this very special mountain plateau which really looks like a moonlike landscape on earth. The so called “chimneys” are pinnacled and conic shaped mountains which ancient people always considered as sacred and devoted to ancient god Hepat. Full of Hittite, and Persian archaeological sites, Cappadocia was lately occupied by the Romans and used by first Christians to hide.
