Top Historical Sites in Bodrum

Top Historical Sites in Bodrum

Bodrum Castle & the Museum of Underwater Archaeology

Bodrum Castle has many traces of former civilisations and houses relics from the ancient days of the Knights of St. John to excavated shipwrecks, and the museum is one of the largest of its kind in the world.

Ancient Theatre

This is one of the best preserved sites left in Bodrum and dates back to the Classical period.  Interestingly the seats have an exact space measurement of 40cm between them and it once had a capacity for 13,000 people.  The theatre is still used today for concerts and other events just as it was in the past.

Halicarnassus Mausoleum

This was built for King Mausolus, a satrap in the Persian Empire and his wife (and sister!) Artemisia II of Caria and believed to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.  There is little left of the impressive structure and remnants from here are now displayed at the British Museum in London and a model of it is housed inside Bodrum Castle.

Myndos Gate

Myndos Gate once faced the ancient city of Myndos and was witness to Alexander the Greats most significant siege.  Today visitors can see remains of the gate along with tombs dating from Hellenistic and Roman times.

Maritime Museum

This is the  place to come for those interested in anything nautical to see the impressive displays of boats, and learn of the history of seafaring and ship building from its 1000’s of exhibits.  It also has a stunning collection of sea shells on the top floor which is particularly popular.

Karakaya Village

This 300 year old village was once a shelter created by pirates and is located just before Gumusluk.  On one side the site remains abandoned but on the other the stone houses have been restored and have fantastic views out to sea and at the village entrance there are some interesting 18th century windmills.

Ottoman Shipyard

Located in the centre of Bodrum just behind the marina this was constructed in 1775 to build new ships, along with a watch tower, after the Ottoman fleet was destroyed by the Russians. The tower today hosts various art events and at the back of the shipyard is an historical Ottoman cemetery.
