Why limit yourself to experiencing only Greece when the breathtaking coastline of Turkey is within easy reach, promising an exceptional glimpse into its culture and attractions? Embark on a daily excursion to Bodrum, a brief 20-minute journey across the Aegean aboard a speedy Catamaran.
Bodrum, once known as Halicarnassus, has a rich tapestry of history that has shaped its present. Its history dates back to the 13th century BC, when it was founded by the Dorians. It then became part of the Persian Empire before it was reclaimed during Alexander the Great’s conquest in the 4th century BC.
One of the city’s most significant historical figures is Herodotus, often referred to as the ‘Father of History’. Born in Halicarnassus in the 5th century BC, he went on to write ‘The Histories,’ a record of his inquiries into the origins of the Greco-Persian Wars, making significant contributions to the field of historiography.
During the Crusades in the 15th century, the Knights of Saint John used stones from the Mausoleum to build the Castle of Saint Peter, a fortress that still stands today as one of Bodrum’s main attractions.
Bodrum was also a significant city in the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, and it retains this rich history in its architecture and culture. Today, it is a popular tourist destination, known for its Mediterranean atmosphere, historical sites, and vibrant nightlife.
