Reasons to Visit Cappadocia
Based in New Jersey, Barry Grummer, the president of K Restoration and Roofing Corp., is certified in all types of roofing and materials and holds a graduate certificate in construction management from New York University. In his free time, Barry Grummer enjoys traveling around the world, most recently visiting Cappadocia, a region in central Turkey.
Cappadocia is known for its surreal landscapes, a mix of rounded and jagged rock formations found in hues ranging from reds to pinks. But the natural beauty is not the only reason to visit Cappadocia.
Cappadocia dates back to 5500 BCE, and has been visited by many of the world’s greatest civilizations, including the Hittites, the Greeks and Romans, the Byzantines, and the Ottomans. The area is also significant to both Christianity and Islam. Furthermore, Cappadocia is home to many unique arts and cultural customs, from pottery making and rug weaving to twirling dervishes and folk dancing.
