Bodrum is a port city and a district of Turkey in the Southwestern Aegean region, located on the Southern coast of Bodrum peninsular, at the entrance of the Gulf of Gokova.
In the ancient times, Bodrum was the ancient Greek city of Halicarnassus and was famous for housing one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus. Unfortunately, the ancient monument was destroyed in the Middle Ages by earthquakes, bus some of the remnants can still be seen in the British Museum.
Bodrum is a fascinating place with a pleasing contrast between the ancient and modern, with fragments of its ancient history spreading out everywhere over the town. The Bodrum Castle built by the Knights Hospitaller in the 15th century overlooks the harbour and the marina, and is undoubtedly the most prominent landmark of the city.
