LISTEN to this article.

Before traveling to Turkey, it is useful to get acquainted with the information about the country. This series of articles will help you avoid unpleasant surprises and enjoy your holiday.

Often when visiting travel agencies you are advised to resort, even without asking a single question. We can assume that the employees of these companies are telepaths, and after reading your thoughts, they learned about your preferences in rest.

In this article, we will describe the different resorts in Turkey, so that the reader can consciously choose one of them, depending on their preferences in rest.

The first group of resorts that we present to you is a group of resorts around the city of Antalya on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Antalya is a center of tourism in Turkey, it is a city in Turkey, which, perhaps, every Russian knows.

Antalya is a millionaire city. In the area of ​​the city of Antalya there are more than 200 hotels for every taste and all price categories.

The undoubted advantage of these hotels is the proximity to the airport of Antalya, transfer to the hotel takes 20-30 minutes.

The second important advantage is the fact that you can stay in a beach hotel right in the city. You can always go out to the city, go to a cafe or restaurant. At your disposal are shops, discos and nightclubs of the city.

Of the sights in Antalya there are several interesting places. First of all the waterfall Dyuden. There they carry all tourists during the sightseeing tour of Antalya. Waterfalls are pretty, but they do not cause much enthusiasm, if you look at them from the shore. They look great from the sea, but such a tour should be ordered separately.

A very beautiful sight opens when a rainbow is formed above the waterfall. Downstairs there are people with fishing rods and fishing.

The second interesting place in Antalya can be called the local archaeological museum. It is located almost in the center of the city, you can reach it by taxi. The exposition of the museum is very interesting. The only problem is that it is quite difficult to determine to which state and epoch this or that exhibit belongs.

The exhibits in the halls of the museum are selected not by epoch, but by themes, ceramics of absolutely different periods and cultures can stand next to them. For an ordinary tourist it's not bad, even more interesting, recommends this museum as an entertainment.

Khydyrlyk is a defensive structure, which remains from the Romans. It is a small tower. Watch there especially nothing, visit, if your hotel is not far. Just ask the hotel, whether it's far from City Hall, the tower is nearby.

In the same place, nearby there is an old area of ​​city on which it is interesting to walk and feel an atmosphere of olden time, this area Kaleichi is called. In Kaleici there are many narrow streets and a magnificent promenade, along which it is pleasant to walk in the evening.

In Antalya there are two water parks, this is Aqualand Aquapark and Dedeman Aquapark. In Aqualand there is a dolphinarium. Aqualand is located in the western part of the city, Dedeman - in the east. Choose one that is closer to your hotel, if you want to swim with dolphins, then, of course, have to go to Aqualand in any case.

In Antalya there are several large mosques.

In the end of the story about Antalya, we will give some advice on choosing a hotel. To have a good holiday here, you should pay attention to two important points.

First, if you want to have access to the city of Antalya, make sure that the hotel you want to go to is really within the city limits. All the hotels that are located in Antalya itself, and next to it, in the description there is the inscription "Antalya". As a result, you may find yourself in a situation where you, it seems, are in Antalya, and before it from your hotel is 5 kilometers away.

And if you want to walk around the city, its shops and parks, you have to go by taxi, which is not an expensive pleasure in Turkey. For example, when you arrive at a restaurant, you can fully discover that you paid more for a taxi than the most expensive kebab on the menu .

The second point is the choice of the location of the hotel relative to the beach. Look carefully at the photos, whether there is a road between the hotel and the beach. Often in the descriptions of the hotel the fact of the presence of the road is not specified. Agree, go to the beach through a busy highway, believe me, there are such hotels, a very dubious pleasure, especially if the description of the hotel is written the phrase "the first line."

Conclusion: Antalya is a good place to relax. Clean beaches with pleasant sand will provide you the pleasure of being at sea. The opportunity to walk around the city, see the sights and go to the water park without booking excursions. The minimum distance from the airport. Antalya is not suitable only for a relaxing holiday, because here you can feel the influence of the city.

In the east of Antalya hotels of this resort smoothly flow into the hotels of another resort region called Belek.

Belek is a city of golf and other entertainment. The city of Belek itself is very small, only 10,000 people, but this city is famous throughout the world as a golf center, a quality beach holiday and the Troy Water Park.

In Belek there are no historical or natural attractions, there is no old city. Of course, in the guidebooks you will find many references to different places of interest in Belek, but they are all far from the city, you have to go all the way. The time it takes to get to every sight, we usually point out in our reviews on We are now talking about what is located directly in the city.

Belek is a city for entertainment. There are more than 20 nightclubs and discos. If you want to play golf, then you too in Belek, but this is not an expensive pleasure. Well, of course, at your service is the famous water park of Troy, in which there is a hill that raises you up, and does not lower down. In addition, Troy is the largest water park in Turkey with the largest number and variety of slides.

The water park is stylized near Troy, in the center there is a climb to the hills, made in the form of a Trojan horse, throughout the water park are layouts of shields, weapons and armor, which can be photographed. If you have not been taken to the casting for the film Troy (some Brad Pete bypassed), then you can "tear yourself away" here. The most popular place for photographing is the chariot model. On the Troy water park we have a separate review.

In Belek a lot of real estate is being built, which is in constant demand among Europeans and our compatriots. It is worth the property in Belek is more expensive than in other regions, this area is considered elite. In Belek, there are almost no cheap hotels, most hotels in Belek are 5 stars, working on the "all-inclusive" system.

Conclusion: If you are traveling to Turkey solely for the sake of entertainment, then you definitely need to go to Belek. Sandy beaches with loose and pleasant sand will give excellent sensations from beach rest. Disco clubs, nightclubs and the Troy water park are within walking distance - what else is needed for fun.

But remember, Belek is an expensive resort. Although, if you can not afford it, do not be discouraged. A trip to the water park of Troy is organized from any resort on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, 50-60 USD, an hour of travel by bus, and you are in the water park of Troy.
