Beauties of Turkey: Bodrum

Dear Residence Insurance customers, we are happy to share with you the Bodrum issue of our Beauties of Turkey series. If you're ready, let's get to know Bodrum together.


Bodrum, which is one of the most preferred holiday destinations of our country, is one of the most beautiful districts connected to Mugla. Bodrum, which can be described as the heart of the Aegean, is covered with seas on three sides.

Bodrum, formerly Halikarnassos, was founded by Bodrum Dors in 484 BC. After them, it was named Halikarnassos when it was raised by bodrum Megerans, who hosted the peoples of Karya and Leleg. 

Around Bodrum, which is a peninsula, many Greek islands are seen, including Karaada, Görecek, Çelebi, Çavuş, Fener and Salih Island, respectively.

Bodrum is reached by air, sea and land. The nearest airport is Milas-Bodrum Airport, which is approximately 35 kilometers away.

Milas-Bodrum Airport can be reached directly or directly from Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Bursa and all other provinces.

Holidaymakers departing from Istanbul will reach the district center after 706 km.

If you are on your way from Ankara, bodrum center will be reached after 701 km.

If you are on your way from Izmir to Bodrum, the district is reached after 236 km.

In order to have a pleasant time in Bodrum, one of our recommendations to our foreign health insurance (yabancı sağlık sigortası) customers is to spend a holiday alone with nature and at the same time to visit and see historical places.

The historic Bodrum Castle has a history of 600 years and is splendored in the district center.

Ancient Theater, one of the oldest buildings in Bodrum, is one of the magnificent buildings that have reached today from the Classical Age. Built in the 4th century BC, this theater is a theater that was built in the 4th century BC. It can host 13,000 viewers and continues to host various events and concerts during the tourism period.

Kale Underwater Archaeological Museum, located within Bodrum Castle, is Turkey's only underwater museum. Works excavated as a result of various excavations and researches are exhibited. This museum, which is shown first among the attractions in Bodrum, is among the largest underwater archaeological museums in the world.

The Mausolees of Halicarnassics was built for King Mausolos by his sister and his wife and is on the Seven Wonders of the World list. The large mausoleum, which bears traces of Greek and Egyptian architecture and had a very magnificent architecture at the time it was built, is among the important sightseeing points that are the center of attention of tourists.
