"Bogazkale-Hattusas-Yazilikaya" Bogazkale by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Bogazkale Travel Guide: 48 reviews and 304 photos

Hattusa which is situated near modern Bogazkale (formerly Bogazköy) was the capital of the Hittite Empire in the late Bronze Age.
The region is set in a loop of the Kizil River (Marashantiya in Hittite sources and Halys in Classical Antiquity) in central Anatolia.

Hattusa was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1986.

You may watch my 33 high resolution photos in a slide-show Hattusas-Yazilikaya out of my Webshot page.

    The Hittites are blushing at your memories! Those sheep dogs were hoping to join your flock ;-]

    Very interesting! I never heard of this place (but should have... from history lessons). Fascinating excavations and your videos and slide shows are great! I love the music from the bus tour :-) And these dogs... are soooo cute!
