Nevşehir Ürgüp Museum


Ürgüp, 20 km east of Nevsehir, is one of the most important centres of the Cappadocia region.

With a geological structure of volcanic formations, Urgup was established within the region which had been shaped into fantastic forms known as ‘Fairy Chimneys’, through erosions of water and wind.

It has been known by many names: Osian (Assiana), Hagios Prokopios (Byzantine), Bashisar (Seljuk), Burgat Kaalesi (Ottoman) and finally Urgup, from shortly after the founding of the Turkish Republic.

 

Ürgüp Museum was founded in 1971.

There are archaeological and ethnographic artifacts collected from Urgup region at the museum.

Among these works belonging to the Prehistoric, Early Bronze Age, Hittite, Frig, Persia, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods, are found.

Also, fossils uncovered in the Urgup region, are being exhibited at the museum.
