Known as Halicarnassus in antiquity, Bodrum has a storied history. The city stands on the site of the Ancient Greek city of Halicarnassus, which was home to the Tomb of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. However, the city’s most impressive, preserved structure is the medieval Bodrum Castle – the Castle houses the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, one of the city’s major cultural and artistic venues.
In addition to historical and cultural sites, Bodrum features secluded bays and pristine beaches along with five-star hotels and a bustling nightlife (especially in summer!). But however, you choose to spend your time in Bodrum, keep in mind the words of the Fisherman of Halicarnassus, the Turkish writer Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı:
