BODRUM

 

Built by the Knights of Rhodes in the 15th century and dedicated to St. Peter, Bodrum Castle took 99 years to build. The castle covers approximately 30,000 Sqm and has five towers called French, English, Italian, German and Snake Towers.  Once known as Halicarnassus, the recorded history of Bodrum Turkey dates to the time of ancient Greece. Here is the location of the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Today, one of the attractions in Bodrum is this archeological site and its ruins. Everyone who takes a vacation to Bodrum will see another of the city’s landmarks, the imposing Crusader Castle. It was built using stones from the Mausoleum by Crusader knights who arrived in 1402. These were the Knights Hospitaller of Rhodes, who came here after their previous fortress in Izmir was destroyed. Suleyman the Magnificent conquered the knights’ headquarters on the island of Rhodes and they fled to Malta, leaving the castle and the town under the rule of the Ottoman Empire. On the grounds is one of the best maritime museums in the country, the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archeology with collections of treasure and artifacts from numerous shipwrecks. There is an impressive sound and light show at the castle on summer evenings.

Bodrum itself is a bustling resort, popular with British Tourists. Its beautiful harbour plays host to numerous visiting ships and yachts and has many restaurants and bars along the waters edge where you can sit back with a cool drink and take in the views. There are plenty of shops, bazaars and a weekly street market, plus the Oasis Shopping Center, where you`ll find designer clothes shops and a small Marks & Spencer. There are a number of large supermarkets, including Kipa, owned by Tesco, and a cash and carry (Metro) that will allow you in on a `day pass` providing you show your passport, and for the DIY enthusiast you must seek out Koçtas, the Turkish B&Q.
