Built during the 15th century medieval Crusades, Bodrum Castle is known as the St. Peter Libertador Castle because it is a place for Christians on the west coast of Asia Minor. In the era of Suleiman the Great in 1523, the territory of the Ottoman Empire continued to expand, and the country bordered with it. The castle gradually lost its important position. In 1895, it was converted into a prison where more than 700 prisoners were detained.
Nowadays, it is valued as one of the world's most ruined museums of wrecks, from which you can see the full picture of Bodrum.
Entering the castle, the light and shadow are intertwined, and a medieval door has been opened to you, where you can see the active traces left by the Crusaders. There are many exhibition halls in
, but most of them can't take pictures. It is worth seeing is the Princess Karia exhibition hall, which displays a gold crown, necklace, bracelet, ring and a rare gold peach bridal leaf pattern.

Some people say that although there are many seaside cities on the Mediterranean coast, they are similar. Pick one or two. But I think that every city has its own unique taste, and the talent is the most worthwhile thing to experience. Bodrum is located at the junction of the Mediterranean Sea and the Aegean Sea. Bodrum is more artistic than the traditional Turkish seaside resort that attracts tourists by the sea. Whether it is a European tour or a Turkish country Tycoon is very fond of coming to this holiday. When the car leaves the highway, more and more villas and boutique hotels are jumping into our field of vision. Yes, this is Bodrum. Bodrum is an economically developed city in Turkey, and prices are relatively high, especially for accommodation. The hotels we choose are not in prime locations, but the prices are not cheap. Looking for the hotel along the alleys that can only be used for one car, but fortunately, the enthusiastic locals have guided us to arrive. With a map of the hotel butler, we started the journey of Bodrum. From the hotel, it takes five minutes to reach the lively seaside commercial street. The clean streets, the blooming cafes, the blue and white faades and the alleys that lead directly to the sea make me think of the Greek Mikno. The difference is that there is no blue-top church here. Bodrum is a summer resort in Turkey and the internationally renowned Blue Voyage Yacht Center. For those who like to drive their own yachts, Bodrum is the best choice to sail in Bodrum. Sailing in the peninsula is just to pursue that silence.
