      It was! Amazing how something so old had so many details. We only think we need our technology! They made some really cool things without any of it. 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate your comment.

  2. wow, this is so awesome!! I can’t believe that about 5000 people and their livestock would head down there for their safety. Wow, I can’t imagine how it is to be there – so having a tour from Mustafa Yuce would be great since he personally grew up there! Thanks for sharing about this!

    Thanks for sharing this, the design and construction is pretty amazing. We definitely do not have the discipline to carry out something like this in our ‘modern’ times 🙂

    It is so fascinating. I didn’t know there is a whole underground city to discover out there. You definitely had a great time!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      We were fascinated! The fact that the entire population, animals included, could disappear so quickly is amazing. No way we could do that now. LOL!

  5. This is absolutely fascinating. I love how incredibly smart ancient societies were when it came to protection against all sorts of forces. Just remarkable really. Maybe modern day society could learn a thing or two! Would love to visit this.

      This was the highlight of an amazing trip to Turkey. Such an amazing place. We were very impressed with the details!

  6. This is fascinating- how amazing that they let tourists explore. I can’t believe that they got 5000 people in there. Does it feel like they could or is it a real squeeze?

  7. Wow I didn’t realise this placed exist! That is such discipline in that evacuation – I am a primary school teacher and the kids could learn a thing or two from this (there fire drill is always atrocious!)

    • NatalieTanner says:

      No doubt! LOL! I taught elementary school for a long time and a quick evacuation would be like herding cats. LOL!

  8. I had no idea about this underground city! The ingenuity and cleverness of ancient civilizations never cease to amaze me. Turkey is at the top of my travel list – will keep this in mind. Thanks for sharing!

  9. This is amazing! I am always in awe whenever I see something like this. How were they able to build this without the modern technology that we now have. Man’s architectural prowess right there. 🙂

    This is very educational and interesting at the same time! While reading about this amazing underground city, I honestly didn’t want this article to end ha! I can’t wait to visit it myself now! Looks and sounds so amazing! Who ever built it must have had a brilliant engineer or an architect ha!

    Underground cities are neat, but they also creep me out with all the ancient history that was buried for so many years! Sometimes I wonder why the cities built over top of them! Something more to add on my Turkey bucket list!
