ABOUT US

Kızılırmak River, also known as the Halys River in ancient Greek, is the longest river in Turkey flowing for a total of about 1,350 kilometers. The Hittites called it the Maraššantiya. It formed the Western boundary of the Hittite empire. From the 9th to the 13th centuries many significant Christian communities lived in Cappadocia; around Ürgüp, Göreme, Uçhisar, Çavuşin, Zelve and Avanos.
