  Afyon

The province is located as a gateway between the sea and inner regions of Anatolia. The history of Afyon goes back to 4000 BC. The city is famous for its specific "Turkish Delight" and "Kaymak", a kind of hard cream put on desserts, which one should certainly taste at least once.

Afyon is a spa-center with thermal baths in Gazi Kaplicasi (25 km northwest), Gecek and Omerli Kaplicalari (18 km and 15 km northwest respectively), and Hudai Kaplicasi 73 km southwest of the town, Sandikil which is also famous for its mud baths, too. All these resorts have board and lodging facilities.

The Archaeological Museum and the War of Independence Memorial are places to visit in the city and to the north of Afyon there are Phrygian remains in the form of monumental cult rocks. Aslantas and Aslankaya are the largest of these. The lion reliefs, which gave the name to these rocks are seen on sides of the rock and cult temples. Afyon Citadel which was built during the Byzantine period previously was used as a fortress by the Hittite King Mursil II, is another monument to see in the city. The town of Dazkin on the Denizli highway is famous for its carpets and kilims.
