Travel Tips for Urgup

Briefly Turkish Cuisine

by FAIRYCHIMNEY

At its finest , Turkish food is amongst the best of the world.The range of climate zones means that country is one of only six in the world that are self-sufficient in terms of food production.Recipes have been passed down from generation to generation.As Turkey itself has been influenced by many cultures,different areas tend to have their own unique and traditional dishes.
The legacy of an Imperial kitchen is also evident. Hundred of cooks,all eager to please the royal palate,had their influence in perfecting the cuisine as we know it today. The importance of culinary art for the Ottoman sultans is evident to every visitor to the Topkapý Palace in Ýstanbul.By the 17th century there were some 1300 kitchen staff housed at the palace.Every cook specialized in different categories of dishes,such as soups,pilafs,kebabs,vegetables,fish,breads,pastries,sweets and helva, syrups, and jams and bevarages and fed as many as 10.000 people a day.Another important factor influencing the variety and development of Turkish cuisine was the Spice Road was under the full control of the Sultans.
Following the example of the palace, all of the grand otoman houses boasted elaborate kitchens and competed in preparing feasts for each other as well as the general public.In each neighbourhood at least one household would open its doors to anyone who would stop by for diner during the holy month of Ramadan or during any other festive occasions.This is how the traditional cuisine evolved and filtered down to the ordinary people. A real pottery kebab casserole ; they cook egg plants meat and onion in a big pottery bowl for hours and hours and serve with rice(pilaf) grape syrup dessert is awsame !

Stroll in full moon

by ozalp

Somebody told me that the rocks here are amazing under moonlight. If you have this opportunity, be there in full moon, find a local guide to lead you a nice path, stroll under the moon. This could be quite an experience. Even you can propose to your loved one!

Whirling dervishes

by FAIRYCHIMNEY

: Today Sarýhan is the only place in Cappadocia where you go and experience orginal religious ritual of the ‘whirling dervishes’ : It also can be seen in very touristic ‘Turkish’ night entertainments- believe me , we do not entertain ourselves in the same way they show you during this ‘funny’ entertainments.

Uchisar the Castle

by ozalp

This was our final attraction in our first day. After Two open air museums, Avanos and Pasabagi, it was really challenging to climb to Uchisar castle. My leg muscles were aching the following day.
Uchisar is a big rock which is carved and turned into a castle. It is over a hill, so it is a perfect natural structure to be used as a castle. There is a nice town under the castle. You can stay here I some hotels, also a chic restaurant, Elai, is there, too.
Entrance fee is 3 ytl ($2 or 1.7 euro)

Exploring Cappadocia from Urgup

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Ürgüp is a town and district of Nevşehir Province in the Central Anatolia region of Turkey. Located in the historical region of Cappadocia it is renowned for its nightlife and for its good adjustment to tourism making it a popular night stop for Cappadocia tourists.

In the Byzantine period Ürgüp was called under various names such as Osiana, Hagios, Prokopios. During the Seljuks period it was referred to as Başhisar and in the Ottoman Empire period as Burgut Castle, until the first years of the Turkish Republic when it was called Ürgüp.
Ürgüp, whose name derives from "ur kup" meaning "many rocks".
