Every year, more than 100,000 tourists visit the city in Turkey’s southern Mediterranean resort city of Antalya.

The city -- which was famous for producing perfume in antique era – offers a historical journey among the historical ruins from the Greek and Roman period.

Lena Werner, 29, a tourist from Germany, who visited the city with a tourist group for the first time, expressed her enjoyment to Anadolu Agency.
“This place is very nice. Historical ruins in the one hand, and natural beauties in the other hand. It’s special to have a swim amid antique remains,” she said.
Vedat Cubuk, who travelled to the city from Turkish capital, Ankara, said he visits the city every year for spending holidays.
“Beaches with no waves are among reasons families choose this place. The sea is neat and clean, water is as clear and pure as physically possible. I think, this unique beauty of our country needs to be advertised in all corners of the world.”
