I would suggest you take a guided tour to tell you all about the history of this complex. if you're brave to take some pictures inside the chapels (it's forbidden ) please don't use the flash because it could damage the fresco.

This is a must visit place while in the area in my opinion. The open air museum is of decent size and you easily spend 2-3 hours in there. The views from there are spectacular. We were a group and got a group ticket but...More

We worth the visit. Was very near to the hotel and didn't require a tour guide. Stunning views and amazing churches.

Göreme open air museum is the one and only museum to see here. Churches and monastry are well preserved. Dark Church should not be missed. Most preserved one here is Dark Church.

We visited Cappadocia with a 8 years old child, and even for him it was not hard to climb the mountains. Some cave buildings are abandoned, and that’s even more interesting to explore

It is so good. You should go there and the landscape is excellent to take pics. I enjoyed there and I took a lot of photos in Acikhava Muzesi. There was a lot of tourists.

Being an orthodox, I just couldn't miss this gem. It's beautiful, mesmerizing and very touching. You can still see Byzantine crosses, typical orthodox frescos and icons. The dark church is 10 liras extra and totally worth it. I didn't want to leave. I could feel...More

No, not in the centre of town but a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes. Wonderful place to walk around and worth paying a little extra to see the Dark Church. A very beautiful place and do not miss it
