Rest on the Turkish Riviera: Alanya
The famous resort town of Alanya is situated on a rocky promontory jutting out into the Mediterranean, between two long sandy beaches. Seljuk Fortress (XIII century) is one of the most famous sights, crowning this ledge. 150 towers successfully fit into the architecture of the double walls of a well-preserved fortress. Behind the outer walls of the fortress are the ruins of mosques, a caravanserai and a covered bazaar. Outside the inner walls you can see the ruins of the basin and the Byzantine church. Although the history of Alanya dates back to the era of ancient Rome, the city reached its heyday with the Seljuks, when in 1220 Alaeddin Keykubat turned it into its winter residence and, at the same time, into a naval base. The surviving buildings testify to the crucial role of the city during the Seljuks. Tourists can get acquainted with the unique shipyards and the octagonal Red Tower (Kyzyl Kule), located not far from the fortress. Alanya is a modern resort center with comfortable hotels and motels, numerous fish restaurants, cafes and bars. Along the coastal road from the picturesque city park to the harbor are countless shops. In August, the International Folklore Festival takes place in Alanya, which transforms the measured life of the city.
