Visit Van

Located in Turkey’s eastern interior, Van has been a large city since the 9th century BC. It is one of the world’s oldest urban centers and provides visitors with access to Lake Van, which is just a short trip from the city center. Nicknamed the “Pearl of the East,” the landscapes that surround Van are distinctly beautiful.

Many who travel to Van will make their way up to the Fortress. This stone fortification was built during the Kingdom of Urartu, which makes it nearly 3,000 years old. It is the largest example of its kind and a stunning view of the surrounding valley awaits you. Part of the complex has been restored, but the ancient towers still remain as antique lookouts to protect the area.

In the cliffs below the castle, an inscription of Xerxes the Great can be found. Numerous events are held at the lake throughout the year. This includes an offshore Grand Prix, rowing festivals, and daily marine sport activities. Fuel up for your lake adventures by having a tapas breakfast and then enjoy whatever the day may bring your way. The lake, which is the largest in Turkey, has a high salinity level so swimming is easy and the waters are typically open all year.

In the spring, the Pearl Mullet migrates from the lake to the mouths of the rivers that feed it, creating a 2-month period of fishing that may be available. If you get lucky, you may even run into the Lake Van Monster, a 40-foot reptilian mythical monster with flippers. Van is one of those cities that attracts visitors because of its history, but keeps them returning because of its natural beauty. Plan a journey here and you can have a wonderful holiday.
