Extra titelinformatie
Bounded by the modern-day Turkish provinces of Ankara, Afyonkarahisar, Eskisehir, and Kutahya is the land that was once ruled by the Phrygians. Criss-crossing this land, where the Phrygians held sway at the beginning of the first millennium BCE, are countless old roads and footpaths. Following these tracks, and waymarked to international standards, the Phrygian Way is a long-distance walking and cycling route, allowing the visitor to explore not only the wonder of the Phrygian Valleys through which it passes, but also the countless Roman, Byzantine, and Seljuk monuments which dot its 501 km length. This guide book has been prepared to enable the trekker or cyclist to discover the secrets of Phrygia, a kingdom bound up in tales of the legendary King Midas and the mother goddess Cybele. As well as providing general information on the area, the book gives detailed descriptions and directions for the route, GPS points, and camping or other accommodation possibilities along the Way.
