Nestled in the middle east, the historical places in Turkey are nothing less than a haven for history lovers. The country was occupied by the Seljuq, Byzantines, and Ottomans and has left a lot of monuments that are worth visiting. While places like St Nicholas Church are a testament to the Eastern Orthodox sect of Christianity, Mount Nemrut bears significant influence from Greece and Persian deities like Helios, Apollo, and Commagene-Tyche.

The country is also well known for its castle and one of them is Van Castle, which is used to perform religious rituals. You can uncover the St. Nicholas Church, which is dedicated to the social worker St. Nicholas.

Attractions like Mount Nemrut and Goreme Open Air Museum, along with cities like Aphrodisias are Turkey's historical places to visit and are also recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.
