Thermal tourism in Turkey

Thermal tourism in Turkey is an important centre of culture, nature and gastronomy. The history of the spas goes back more than 5,000 years.

The spas were home to many empires such as the Hittites, Phrygians, Romans, Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans. The tradition of thermal baths started here in ancient times and was continued by all societies that lived in historical Anatolia.
