Turkey’s natural beauty is not limited to a single location or season because it is spread out over a wide geographic area and includes regions of bright beauty all year long. Turkey, one of the wealthier countries, has enticing tourist and aesthetic attractions. Turkey attracts tourists from across the world who come to enjoy the beauty of its lovely and diverse regions. In the summer, the sea and the plains are proud to welcome visitors, while in the winter, the mountains are decorated for skiers.
Some resorts and locations in Turkey are more well-known than others due to specific ski resorts that are a big lure for tourists who enjoy skiing. Van is the most important of them, and we’ll talk about him in the lines that follow.
Van, the sixth-largest city in Turkey by land area and located on its eastern border, is occasionally referred to as the “city of beauty” in that country. Van is one of the oldest towns to have been inhabited since the beginning of time, dating back to thousands of years BC.
Van, which is located on the Silk Road, has historically drawn a variety of civilizations, to the point where the monarchs of Urartu (about 900–700 BC) decided to make it their capital. One of the richest archaeological areas, it offers travellers a wide range of masterpieces to visit.
Van, a city that has been inhabited for three thousand years, may be included to the UNESCO World Heritage List since it still includes architectural features and historical artefacts that are still in use today. Not to mention that it has a beautiful lake, waters that can be used to treat a number of diseases, and old structures like cathedrals, mosques, and castles in addition to thermal spas and resorts.
Among the city’s notable historical landmarks is the spectacular Van Castle, one of the most stunning castles built by the kings of the Urartu. It was built on a high hill on the outskirts of the city, 5 km west of Van’s downtown.
