Beschreibung

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Cappadocia also Capadocia; Turkish Kapadokya, from Greek: Kappadokía is a region in central Turkey, largely in Nev ehir Province . The name was traditionally used in Christian sources throughout history and is still widely used as an international tourism concept to define a region of exceptional natural wonders, in particular characterized by fairy chimneys and a unique historical and cultural heritage. The term, as used in tourism, roughly corresponds to present-day Nev ehir Province. Cappadocia's limits are debated. In the time of Herodotus, the Cappadocians were reported as occupying the whole region from Mount Taurus to the vicinity of the Euxine Black Sea. Cappadocia, in this sense, was bounded in the south by the chain of Mount Taurus, to the east by the Euphrates, to the north by Pontus, and to the west by Lake Tuz, in Central Anatolia. But Strabo, the only ancient author to provide a major account of the area, may have greatly exaggerated its dimensions. It is now believed that Cappadocia realistically was limited to an area stretching 400 km 250 mi east-west and 200 km 120 mi north-south.
