Known as the pearl of the Aegean, Bodrum has much to offer to visitors with its azure sea, nature parks, cultural and historical richness, uniquely beautiful coves and beaches, restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping spots.
Bodrum is one of the oldest settlements of Antiquity and has been home to Persian, Carian, Doric, Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman civilizations throughout history. It is known that Bodrum was found in 484 B.C by Dorians in the exact place where the Bodrum Castle is located today. Bodrum, which came under the rule of Carians and then Persians and Romans, was called “Halicarnassus” in ancient times. Bodrum was later named after the knights of St. Petrium who came to be known as the builders of Bodrum Castle. The region, which came under the rule of the Ottoman Empire in 1522, officially took its new name with the proclamation of the republic.
With its unique architectural structure, deep-rooted history, cultural wealth, white-painted houses and dreamy landscape adorned with bougainvillea, Bodrum stands as an important gateway opening to the world from the Aegean. Bodrum is flooded by local and foreign tourists not only in summer but also in spring and autumn. Cevat Sakir Kabaagacli, known as the fisherman of Halicarnassus, expressed his feelings about Bodrum as follows:
“When you reach the top of the hill, you will see Bodrum,
Don’t assume that you will leave as you came.
Others before you were the same too.
As they departed, they all left their souls behind…”
