There are few places in the world that have as rich of a history as Turkey. The area can trace its roots back to over 40,000 years ago encompassing thousands of rulers, hundreds of languages, and countless important moments in history. Today, modern Turkey combines the ruins and relics of its history with the latest water sports and modern nightclubs.The ancient town of Hasankeyf is located along the Tigris River in southeast Turkey. Although the cliff dwellings are thought to be around 2,000 years old, the area is believed to have been settled for an even longer period of time. Although it’ll take a little while and several busses to get there, Hasankeyf castle houses historical pieces of art and several ancient mosques that are worth seeing.
