About 100,000 tourists visited the famous Cappadocia region in central Turkey in February.

According to a statement issued by the state of Nevsehir on Saturday, the number of visitors to museums and historical monuments in Cappadocia during the past month reached 99,389.

The region received 83,432 tourists in the same month last year.

The Cappadocia region is distinguished as one of the most unusual and beautiful landscapes in the world and has been classified by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization “UNESCO” as a World Heritage Site.


The area is most famous for its “fairy chimneys” or “devil’s tables”, which are stones in the form of columns topped with rocks and formed naturally as a result of the influence of winds and atmospheric factors on the volcanic rocks that abound in the area.
