Mediterranean Region of Turkey
Mediterranean Region: The Mediterranean turkey is the Turkish region which takes up most of the south turkey’s coast and some more inland regions. This part of the nation is most famous for its ruins and citadels. A number of ancient city ruins have dotted the region completely. Most of these ruins are supposed to be close to the indigenous civilization of the nation and these were later rebuilt or expanded by the Roman travelers. Because this region also lies in the route between Middle East and Europe, visitors can see a number of citadels. These are either seen in valleys, or surrounding the cities or also on rocky hills so that the nearby roads could be defended from undesired guests. The citadels in the region’s eastern part are seen to be heavily fortified as they were built by crusaders.
Another place popular along the way is the Lycian way which is a hiking trail that connects the south Antalya suburbs with fethiye. A popular activity in this Mediterranean region is yachting as the western pamphylia and Lycia coasts offer a lot of yachting options. There is the popular blue voyage or blue cruise yachting place started in the forties by some Turkish intellectuals.
