Main Attractions in Bodrum

The main attractions of Bodrum lie in its rich historical bounty, you might lose yourself in its mysterious alleys and streets all narrating a tale of its own. A few of them are:

- The famous Mausoleum that has been overlooking Bodrum (earlier known as Halicarnassus) for nearly 16 centuries. Only in 1304 AD did the magnificent, and architecturally beautiful structure perish due to an earthquake.

- The medieval castle of St. Peter stands in the harbor of Bodrum as an exceptional instance of crusader architecture.

- The Bodrum Cup Race is a main draw for tourists every year in October where traditional yachts known as "gulette" compete with each other.
