Alanya – the history spread out before you
Alanya is a small resort city on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It originally belonged to Greek colonists, but then for a long time it was part of different empires and finally became part of Turkey. Tourists come here for many reasons: it is comfortable to rest here, especially with small children, due to its mild climate, clean water and small sand. Besides, there are also lots of places of entertainment in this city (clubs, boutiques, etc.). And, of course, you can just take a walk around the city enjoying its beautiful places and buildings. The main sights of the city include the Kızıl Kule (Red Tower) which is actually an open-air museum, Damlataş Cave and Lovers’ Cave, the Süleymaniye Mosque, Tersane shipyard, Xamaxia, etc.
