Goreme National Park, Goreme

#1 of 10 in Parks in Goreme
Get a bird's eye view of the natural rock formations at Goreme National Park. As a World Heritage Site, the park's ancient structures have been protected from development. Many have been left untouched, though some were carved out and used as churches during the Roman period. More recently, some have been transformed into housing and restaurants. The park covers 40 sq km (15.4 sq mi), and while it may seem untraditional, the best way to see it is from above. Consider taking a hot air balloon ride over the entire park and, along with the landscape, you'll likely see dozens of other balloons in the distance. Ask your hotel for a suggestion on who to book with, as there are many companies throughout Cappadocia that organize these rides.

  • Göreme Open Air Museum is a magnificent open air park for the tour. Many caves are great for exploring. It is good to see “churches” in some of these caves.  more »
  • We enjoyed our stay here learning about the history of the area and walking around the chimney rocks.  more »
