Kalkan (Turkey) Reviews
Description:City: Kalkan / Country: Turkey / World Region: Asia
Newest Review: ... the harbour are utterly delightful. The shops and restaurants are quite commercialised, as is to be expected in such a popular resort but adds a charm that never quite descends into tackiness. Outside of the old town things get a little more utilitarian. Frankly, the majority of the commercial buildings around here would struggle to win any prizes for architectural merit.

Those of you who know your history will be well aware that this region of Turkey was subject to great turmoil after the First World War when, in the early 20s, Kamal Ataturk guided the creation of the Turkey we know today from a very different geographical disposition. Much of the mainland where Kalkan is situated was at the time Greek whilst most of the off-shore islands were Turkish. Conflicts between the Greek and Turkish governments resulted in the mutually agreed policy of forced expulsions of Greeks and Turks from their former homes.

I had never heard of Kalkan before one of my relatives moved there.

Kalkan.. I have only been to Turkey once so far and I went to this samll village called Kalkan. As far as I am aware this Village is not very widely known as a tourist resort, and is one of the few 'unspoilt' places I have been. It is far from the Zante's, Benidorm's and Blackpools many people call a holiday. Its a true culture change and the best experience I have had so far in my life.

The little village had everything I wanted, all so close and ... Read the complete review
