The Turkish name Kusadasi means an island of birds and originates from the small island not far from the centre of Guvercin Adasi, where a stone fortress is located - the symbol of the city. The ancient cities and beautiful beaches are the biggest attractions of the region, attracting millions of tourists from all over the world with the richness of historical monuments and terrific conditions for experiencing unforgettable holidays.

Kusadasi has a rich history. Among others, Venetian and Genoese merchants roll through it, who called this place Scala Nuova. In 1413, to raise the importance of the city, the Grand Vizier Okuz Mehmet Pasha ordered to erect here a mosque and Kaleici hammam, the city walls and the caravanserai. Today you can admire the remains of these remarkable buildings. But that's just a taste of what awaits here for history buffs and enthusiasts of sightseeing. Just 20 km from Kusadasi is one of the most frequented tourist attractions in Turkey: the very well preserved remains of the ancient city of Ephesus. One of the most beautiful ancient cities impresses with its vastness and number of preserved structures. The surroundings are a paradise for hotheads of antiquity, because in addition to Ephesus, nearby there are familiar places like Pirene, Miletos and Didyma. Kusadasi is an ideal place for people young-at-heart. The centre is famous for its rich nightlife. There are plenty of bars, taverns, pubs, karaoke bars, clubs with Turkish music, dance clubs and discos. There are also many attractions for our youngest tourists, because in Kusadasi there are two large waterparks, where you can go crazy all day. The surrounding areas of Kusadasi are a paradise for beachgoers, where the wide, sandy beaches delight. In the city itself the beaches are small and crowded. The most beautiful beach - Long Beach, begins approx. 6 km south of the centre and stretches out for 22 km! Here there are no crowds, everyone will find their favourite corner, the sand is very fine, and the water sparkles with thousands of colours. Peace, tranquility, beautiful views of islands and the hills complete this idyllic landscape. In Kusadasi everyone will find something for themselves. People who love to explore, nowhere else in Turkey will they have the opportunity to admire so many ancient cities. Those who wish to go crazy after sightseeing will find a rich nightlife here. And then a well deserved break in the elegant hotel by the beautiful beach. If you like Turkey, and you have already been to Alanya, and to Fethiye, and to Bodrum - Kusadasi is a mandatory point of the programme for this year's holiday. We invite you!
