Eastern Turkey rewards those willing to get off the beaten path. Immerse in the magnificent sights of this land of lost civilizations, come back home full of impresions of a mosaic of religions and kingdoms, mud brick cities and exotic bazaars. From medieval Ani, capital of Armenian Kingdom to Ishak Pasha's Pleasure Palace, from the 3000-year-old Urartian Citadel to the Church of Holy Cross, from Saffron Monastery to giant fallen heads at Mount Nemrut, you will travel in a rugged land beneath the snow-capped peaks of Mount Ararat, the legendary resting place of Noah's Ark.
