Let’s get to know two old fairy-tale towns in Aegean Region: one is ghostlike while the other one is alive and kicking. The more information you have before you go, the more you will enjoy your trip.
The ghost town of Kayaköy is an eye- catching hidden spot near Fethiye, Muğla. The quiet and mysterious atmosphere of the empty streets and deserted stone houses is absolutely mind-blowing. Kayaköy used to be a Greek town until 1923, in which the governments of Turkey and Greece signed a treaty of population exchange. Most of the Turkish people who were forced to settle in Kayaköy didn’t want to live here as the land wasn’t suitable for farming. At present, Kayaköy is preserved as a museum consisting of nearly 500 houses, narrow streets, two churches and a school, all of which are ruins now. If you want to see somewhere off the beaten track and enjoy the silence, you should visit this ghost town. You can take a day tour to Kayaköy to walk the empty cobblestone streets, and take fascinating photographs. If you’re an adventurer, hiking and horse-back riding are the most popular outdoor activities that can be done here.
Birgi is a small pretty town which has become a charming open-air museum with the latest restorations.
The town is 10 km away from Ödemiş,
İzmir. With its well-preserved architecture,
Birgi is widely known for its traditional Turkish city identity.
When you walk along the historic streets, you will feel that different periods are presented with traditional houses and historic monuments from the 14th century. Every weekend especially local visitors come here to see the architectural beauties, try local food and take beautiful photographs. One of the most popular structures in Birgi is the extraordinary Çakırağa Konağı, built in the 18th century. This beautiful house is different from the others since the ceilings and the walls are highly decorated with plants and fruit motifs as well as panoramic city views. What really makes this small town pretty is the warm-hearted local people. Fortunately, the town has been protected from urbanization and the restorations are carried out sensitively.
