The Mayor Mustafa Çelik said, “The best product we can offer to the tourism market is Mount Erciyes.” His predecessor, Mustafa Özhaseki, who is currently the Environment and Urban Affairs Minister, had initiated the project to renovate the idyllic ski center into a ski and mountain resort with an investment worth $200 million.
Kayseri and its surroundings offer various alternatives which are worth visiting not only during the winter but all year long. Known as Caesarea when the Romans ruled it, Kayseri has a long history and a rich cultural heritage.
Excavations continuing for more than five decades have found important artefacts from the Bronze Age and the Hittite era as well as from Assyrian trading colonies. In Kayseri, one can find imprints of those eras carved on many places across the city, starting from the monumental black-basalt walls of the Kayseri Castle, first built under Roman Emperor Gordian III and rebuilt by the Byzantine Emperor Justinian 300 years later.
The Kayseri municipality has invested 200 million Euros in a ski resort in the Erciyes mountain area.
