Turkey – Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, Bodrum

Yesterday, I told you a bit about the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and that we visited the site were the Temple of Artemis was standing. Our next wonder was The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus (Tomb of Mausolus) that is located now in Bodrum. This site looks much better! Well, there are only ruins, but there are also information about the site as well as a model of the mausoleum that helps to imagine how it looked like.

During that trip, we also “saw” the Colossus of Rhodes, however it’s not Turkey, so I’ll keep this information for a month about Greece. 馃檪 I’ll just add, that from Turkey it’s very convenient to visit some of Greek islands.

One more thing about the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus. It’s in the old city of Bodrum, so you can easily go there on foot, but be aware, there are many stray dogs in Bodrum. During the day dogs are calm and just sleep on the streets, but from evening until early morning they run, bark and may be aggressive, especially when they’re in groups.

Wczoraj wspomnia艂am o 7 cudach 艣wiata, oraz 偶e odwiedzili艣my miejsce gdzie znajdowa艂a si臋 艢wi膮tynia Artemidy w Efezie. Dzisiaj, kilka s艂贸w o Mauzoleum w Halikarnasie, kt贸re obecnie znajduje si臋 w Bodrum. To miejsce nie jest zbyt du偶e, mo偶e nawet nie jest zbyt ciekawe, ale znajduje si臋 tam wszystko czego oczekiwali艣my po “cudzie 艣wiata”. S膮 ruiny, jest du偶o informacji, rysunki i nawet makieta. Tak powinny by膰 zaprezentowane wszystkie “cuda”. 馃檪

Nasz trzeci z cud贸w 艣wiata, jaki odwiedzili艣my podczas ostatniej wycieczki po Turcji, to Kolos Rodyjski. To miejsce oczywi艣cie nale偶y do terytorium Grecji, wi臋c szczeg贸艂y zostawi臋 na miesi膮c o Grecji. Dodam tylko, 偶e z Turcji bardzo 艂atwo wybra膰 si臋 na niekt贸re greckie wysepki.

Jeszcze wracaj膮c do Mauzoleum w Bodrum, znajduje si臋 ono w starym mie艣cie i bez problemu mo偶na si臋 tam przespacerowa膰. Warto jednak uwa偶a膰 na bandy ps贸w grasuj膮ce po mie艣cie. W dzie艅 s膮 raczej niegro藕ne, ale od wieczora do rana s膮 do艣膰 aktywne…

  1. infatti, anche io sono arrivata a Bodrum da Rodi, e non era ancora Turchia, ma Grecia! vale la pena di scoprire questo, ma ora mi di tanta tristezza sapere che su queste rotte di civilt脿 la civilt脿 s’infrange, annegando in questo mare profughi in fuga dalle guerre e soprattutto bambini innocenti
    馃檨

    1. oh, that’s a different story…
      and that’s so true, this route is used to do illegal things… unfortunately 馃檨
