NEVE[currency]EHyR (CyHAN)- Cappadocia, one of Turkey's tourist wonder with its fairy chimneys turned into an amazing and exotic land with the coming of autumn. Numerous trees, which lie across the "Cappadocia Valley" added tremendously beautiful landscape to Turkey's tourist paradise valley.

In the autumns, thousands of tourists come from all over the world to see this beautiful autumn in the valley.

Cappadocia is a historical region in Central Anatolia, largely in NevE-ehir Province, in Turkey.

In the time of Herodotus, the Cappadocians were reported as occupying the whole region from Mount Taurus to the vicinity of the Euxine (Black Sea). Cappadocia, in this sense, was bounded in the south by the chain of the Taurus Mountains that separate it from Cilicia, to the east by the upper Euphrates and the Armenian Highland, to the north by Pontus, and to the west by Lycaonia and eastern Galatia.

The name was traditionally used in Christian sources throughout history and is still widely used as an international tourism concept to define a region of exceptional natural wonders, in particular characterized by fairy chimneys and a unique historical and cultural heritage. The term, as used in tourism, roughly corresponds to present-day NevE-ehir Province. In pre-Hellenistic times, Persians, Hittites Assyrians and Greeks all lived in Cappodocia. All of these groups were Hellenised in the era of the Greek city-states. During the Middle Ages, after the settlement of Armenians in the Cappadocian theme during the Byzantine era, numerous Turkish tribes invaded the region, which was subsequently settled by them. Since 1915-1922 Turkish people constitute the vast majority of the population of this region.
