The town of Selçuk, relatively unknown but visited by many tourists

Near Izmir and Kusadasi you find the small town of Selçuk. We had never heard of it but it is visited by many tourists because of the Museum of Ephesus in the city centre. The historical site of Ephesus with its library as one of the world wonders is less than 2km from town. So almost everyone who visits Ephesus also drives along or visits this town. You find here the ruins of Ottomans castle, several Mosques, a fortress, and many piece of art in the street. Enjoy the pictures.

In de omgeving van Izmir en Kusadasi vind je de kleine stad Selçuk. We hadden er nog niet van gehoord maar toch wordt deze stad door vele toeristen bezocht omdat hier zich het museum van Ephesus bevindt. Ook de historische stad van Ephesus ligt op minder dan 2km van Selçuk. Iedereen die daar naar toe gaat moet door of langs deze stad. Je vindt er overblijfselen van een Ottomaans kasteel, verschillende moskeeën, een fort, en vele kunstwerken in de stad. Geniet van de foto’s..
