About This Destination
Bodrum is a city on the Bodrum Peninsula, stretching from Turkey's southwest coast into the Aegean Sea. The city features twin bays with views of Bodrum Castle. This medieval fortress was built partly with stones from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, completed in the 4th century B.C. The city is also a gateway for nearby beach towns and resorts.
The culture of Turkey combines a heavily diverse and heterogeneous set of elements that have been derived from the various cultures of the Eastern Mediterranean (West Asian) and Central Asian region and Eastern European, and Caucasian traditions. Many of these traditions were initially brought together by the Ottoman Empire, a multi-ethnic and multi-religious state.
During the early years of the republic, the government invested a large amount of resources into fine arts such as paintings, sculpture and architecture. This was done as both a process of modernization and of creating a cultural identity. Because of the different historical factors defining the Turkish identity the culture of Turkey combines clear efforts of modernization and Westernization undertaken in varying degrees since the 1800s with a simultaneous desire to maintain traditional religious and historical values.
The local currency in Bodrum Turkey is the Turkish Lira, but you can also spend Euros, British Pounds, and US Dollars at most all of the main tourist venues.

Weather and Climate
Perhaps one of Bodrum’s biggest selling points is its year-round good weather which is why tourists continue to visit the pensulina regardless of the season. The Bodrum climate is wonderfully pleasant, neither too dry or too humid, though it is quite warm, particularly from late spring until mid-autumn. In summer, the dry heat rarely goes above 35°C, while the water is a balmy 25°C. The hottest months are July and August. In winter, although it gets chilly, it can be mild enough to dine outside, and all you will generally need is a sweater or lightweight raincoat. Showers are unlikely in the summer months, but the rainfall is quite high in winter. With sea temperatures ranging from 16 to 25 degrees between summer and winter, Bodrum is a great location for diving holiday at any time of the year.
