The Kaz Mountains, which Homer refers to as the “mother of wild animals with many springs” in the “Iliad Saga,” and where Aphrodite is the beauty of the Kaz Mountains in love with Paris, are one of Turkey’s most unique areas. It is full of surprises waiting to be found, with its cultural patchwork villages, natural wonders, waterfalls, and sophisticated museums. Especially when the autumn sun shines on its unique landscape.
One of the most quiet getaway locations in the Kaz Mountains is Assos, the home of Aristotle, where one of the most famous philosophers in the world, Aristotle, lived for a while and created a school of thought. It has a bohemian feel about it. Assos is divided into three regions: the old port, Behramkale Village, and the Ancient City of Assos. While maintenance on the old port continues, it is currently closed. Despite being a port city, Assos is situated on a hill 250 metres from the sea. At the gateway of Assos’ walls is Behramkale Village. The awe-inspiring Temple of Athena is the most important ruin in the ancient city.
It is highly fascinating to walk around the streets of Adatepe Village, Zeus’s home, where Ottoman mansions and Greek stone dwellings coexist. Stone School is the first stop in the village. The structure was repaired and turned into a centre for philosophy, literature, art, and history. Stop by the village coffee in the shade of two plane trees for a coffee break. The Zeus Altar is a short walk from the village’s entrance. Zeus, the god of the gods, is said to have witnessed and ruled the Battle of Troy from this location.
Museum and Shaman Village Ethnography Museum and Tahtabirds The Alevi-Turkmen settlement of Tahtabirds. Some of the peasants, on the other hand, identify as Shamans. The surviving continue to follow their own customs. The Ethnography Museum is the cause for the high number of tourists to this location. It was founded by Alibey Kudar, a teacher who was born in the village. He has received various accolades from all over the world. The first private ethnography museum in our country. The museum has a number of exhibits, including shamanism symbols, traditional Turkmen dress, and saddlebags. The place is considered one of the best things to see at Kaz Mountains.
Kaz Mountains National Park
The story is so sad, but the vista is breathtaking. Suven Waterfall and Hasan Drowned Kaz Mountains National Park, Hasan Drowned Waterfall. Films and Sabahttin Ali’s tale revolved around her daughter Emine’s love for her oval Hasan. His narrative is tragic, but the scenery is breathtaking.
