DERINKUYU UNDERGROUND CITY:
Derinkuyu is situated 20 km from Kapadokya Hill Boutique Hotel & Spa, on the road to Niğde. The city is approximately 85m deep. It contains all the usual rooms found in an underground city (stables, cellars, storage rooms, refectories, churches, wineries etc.). Apart from these, a large room with a barrel vaulted ceiling on the second floor was missionary school, the rooms to the left being study rooms.
From 3rd and 4th floors onwards the descent is by way of vertical staircases which lead to a cruciform plan church on the lowest floor.
The 55m deep ventilation shaft was also used as a well. Not every floor was provided with a well, however, and some wells were not connected with the surface in order to protect the dwellers from poisoning during raids.
On this Standard Flight, you will be no more than 20 passengers in the basket. After approximately one hour your pilot will determine a suitable landing site and we will land softly and broach the champagne for a toast.
Derinkuyu Underground City was opened to visitors in 1965, but so far only %10 can be visited.
