    Antalya is one of the world’s most popular tourist attractions and historic district in Turkey. It is well known for being home to some of the world’s best tourist resorts, holiday villages and several five star tourist hotels and entertainment spots. The city is in close proximity to some of the most popular archaeological sites in the world.

    The mountain and hilly landscape of Antalya provides excellent sites for hiking and skiing. For the lovers of swimming, the city is bound by the Mediterranean Sea with stunning white sandy beaches and clear turquoise water.

    Antalya has distorted in recent times from a busy beach city to a plush, resort ridden spot that is ideal as a Mediterranean break with a cultural twist. The region’s beaches are laden with turtles and scattered with sand so hot they are an effort to walk on. The clear water is ideal for snorkeling and day-trips out on old-school wooden cruise liners, and – despite the overwhelmingly touristic vibe – the city still holds tight to plenty of its history, too.

    The spectacular beaches provide tourist with perfect location for unwinding while sunbathing and basking under the warmth of the sun.

    The city has a population of more than one million people. The prevailing climate in Antalya is Mediterranean climate. The main seasons are winter and summer. Winters are rainy and temperate while summers are hot and dry.

    What places are there to visit in Antalya? Antalya is a beautiful city rich in art and history. The city is home to several tourists’ attraction sites including historical buildings, an archaeology museum, and ancient ruins.  So if you ever visit Antalya, never miss visiting the places mentioned below and in the search section on this page.

    The old quarter is resplendent with minarets and mosques, as well as being home to an ancient Roman Theater and surrounded by the crumbling walls of the old city. The ornate city wall gates are well worth exploring, as are the back street experiences, like delving in amongst the thin, winding streets or shopping for gently flavored Turkish delight on the busting market stalls. The old harbor is a relaxed place to hang out. Locals offer cheap boat trips for an hour or more. 

    Tomb of Zincirkiran Mehmet Bey

    Tomb of Zincirkiran Mehmet Bey is located in the northern side of Yivli Minaret on the upper garden. The tomb was built in 1377 for Zincirkiran, a Mehmet Bey. It has features similar to those of Ottomans tombs.

    Attalos II Monument

    Atallos II, who was a King of Pegamon is known for being the founder of the city of Antalya in the 2nd century BC. The monument was made by Meneret Owazov in 2003 and placed it at the Republic Square opposite the Clock Tower in Antalya.

    There are also many Ruins of Religious Structures in Antalya including the İskele Mosque, Sultan Alaadin Camii, the Kesik Minaret Mosque (Ulu Mosque), the Yivli Minare Mosque, and an ancient cave: Karain Cave.

    If you live like a local, Turkey is cheap in a way that’s more Asia than Europe; Antalya certainly falls the Asian side of the famed line (Istanbul, they say, is the border between Europe and Asia). While the resorts have a distinctly local flavor and can be pricey (at least for the region, anyway), the real side of the city is downbeat. The tourist side, though, is full of lively bars and clubs, high-end restaurants and a true sense of vacation. 

    Head a little out of town – either on a boat out into the bay and around the islands, or up the impressive surrounding hills – and you will find sights like impressive curtain style waterfalls, troglodyte houses built into the walls of sizable cliffs and even the chance to charter a yacht and spend a day or two cruising, or simply throwing yourself in amongst the turtles and making the most of the incredible local waters.

    Antalya is an ever growing tourist spot, but one that is held on to the local character epitomized by things like the sound of the daily call to prayer, or the winding backstreet markets. It is also the perfect place to stock up on fake designer clothes and drink on the cheap, but most of all it is just an impressively enticing corner of the Mediterranean.
