Turkey's Nevsehir Province is one of the major cities in the Cappadocia region and displays a beautiful combination of nature and history. Geographical movements have formed the famous fairy chimneys, conical structures carved out of the tuff. During the process of historical development, mankind had settled and inhabited these natural wonders, carving houses and churches within these formations themselves and adorned all these settlements with frescoes, bearing the traces of thousands of years of their civilizations.
Nevsehir is therefore the gateway to the magical area of Cappadocia. Today, the city of Nevsehir is a regional transport hub and a provincial town for the surrounding region. It's close enough to the sights of Cappadocia to make it convenient as a base, but it still doesn't have the same charm as the small Cappadocian villages.
It is a great place to find buses and get around the area. It is true that this provincial capital of bland mid-rise apartment buildings has never made travelers linger ... However, good news: an underground city was discovered when the city council started cleaning up the old quarter around Nevşehir Castle. Continuous excavations have since revealed a vast network of tunnels and a church adorned with frescoes that can date back to the 5th century! So all is not lost for Nevsehir, why not give it a chance?
