Derinkuyu Underground City
Derinkuyu Underground City
Underground cities is one of interesting phenomenon found in Cappadocia. Many underground cities were discovered in Cappadocia, but one of the finest examples is Derinkuyu, located between Nevsehir and Nigde. Beneath the earth lie these rock-cut city, which extend for several kilometers in different directions. Certain parts of the city have up to eight or nine levels, and form a veritable labyrinth of narrow tunnels leading to rooms of various sizes numbering in the thousands. The tunnels meet at intersections where they form squares. Like in all of the underground cities there are ventilation chimneys, kitchens, cribs, wine houses, depots for cereals, meeting saloons, toilets shortly every kind of living space necessary for living. There are also locking stones which can be opened and closed only from inside against to the threats which may come from outside. (Location: Derinkuyu (Nevþehir))
