A boat trip over the sunken city of Kekova 2 hours The sunken city of Kekova The name of the island - Kekova - comes precisely from the Lycian language. The Lycians called it Kawakuwa. The island of Kekova used to be part of the mainland. Its length is seven and a half kilometers. The maximum depth between the coast and the island is 105 meters. And the maximum height of the island is 188 meters above sea level. As a result of the earthquake in the ancient period, most of the city of Kekova went under water. Nobody lives on Kekova Island. The only thing here is sometimes you can see only goats, which locals specially bring here. Restoration work is not going on in Kekova Island, because there is no way to restore it. On the territory of the sunken city itself, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkey forbids swimming and scuba diving.

Visit to the ancient city of the Myra

Lycian necropolis and Greco-Roman theater Lycia - Country of the sun Lycia is translated from Lycian as “country of the sun.” Lycians are one of the indigenous peoples of Asia Minor and this suggests that the history of the region begins many millennia ago, or rather, in the fourth century BC. Lycia was a very small state, its territory occupied the area of today's Antalya. But it was a very democratic country. 2300 years ago, the first democratic parliament in the history of mankind was opened precisely in Lycia. The Lycian Union consisted of twenty-three cities. Each city had a right to vote in parliament. But large cities had three votes in parliament, and not one like the rest of the cities. Each year, the head of parliament was elected from different cities, and even women could take this post.

Visit to Demre

Church of St. Nicholas in Demre The Church of St. Nicholas in Demre was built in the 4th century. In the 6th century, the temple was expanded, and in the 7-8th centuries the church was damaged by Arab raids. In the XI century, under Emperor Constantine IX and Empress Zoe, the church was restored and surrounded by walls. The 11th century, the relics of St. Nicholas were transferred to the city of Bari and after that the church was gradually forgotten. This temple was found during excavations only in the middle of the 19th century. The first restoration took place under the guidance of Russian researchers. Excavations and restoration of the temple continue to this day.
