Bodrum city turkey has emerged as a very popular tourist resort due to its attractive coastline and active nightlife. Every year a few hundreds of thousands of tourists visit this city. The city is a Turkish port in Mugla Province, on the Bodrum Peninsula, near the northwest entrance to the Gulf of Gökova, and faces the Greek island of Kos. It is a center of tourism and yachting.

Bodrum city turkey was the capital city of the satrapy of Caria under the Persian Empire. During the ancient times it was known as Halicarnassus. Mausolus made the city his capital and the location ensured the city enjoyed considerable autonomy. After the death of Mausolus in 353 BC, his wife, Artemisia, employed the Greek architects Satyros and Pithios, and the sculptor Scopas to build a monument to him, the first Mausoleum, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. By the mid-1980s, Bodrum became an important tourist resort in Turkey, along with Marmaris, Çesme, Kusadasi, Antalya, and Alanya.
