There really is no defining word or phrase one can use to adequately describe the country of Turkey. It is indescribably beautiful. It is effortlessly diverse. Understandably, the first Turkish city that comes to mind would certainly be Istanbul, the country’s gleaming jewel on the Marmara Sea, and of course its capital Ankara. Yet the country’s attraction is not limited to these urban centers. The city of Bodrum, located on the Gulf of Gokova, is a smaller, less flashy holiday option perfect for those who want an authentic taste of Turkish culture, history, and modern day life in this small coastal city.
Apart from the glittering nightlife the summer crowds bring, Bodrum has its own rich cultural sense. Bodrum has been a home to intellectuals, musicans, and artists for a long time. The synergy of population that is creative, fun loving and hospitable with the beautiful summer tourists and blue Aegean Sea creates a holiday adventure unlike any other.
