Over 3 million tourists visited historical places in Turkey in the June-August period of this year as travel restrictions related to the novel coronavirus eased.
This summer, domestic and foreign tourists preferred to visit mostly historical sites rather than museums due to the pandemic, according to the information obtained by Anadolu Agency from the country's Culture and Tourism Ministry.
Six archaeological sites and four museums were Turkey's top most popular destinations this summer.
Hierapolis-Pamukkale ancient city is the most visited place with over 230,000 visitors.
Pamukkale is a UNESCO World Heritage site known for its mineral-rich thermal waters and white travertine terraces in Turkey's Aegean province Denizli.
Also, the museum dedicated to the 13th-century Muslim mystic poet Mevlana Jalaluddin al-Rumi is the second most visited place, hosting nearly 200,000 tourists.
The Mevlana Museum, located in Konya, drew a total of 3.47 million domestic and foreign tourists last year, becoming the country's number two museum destination after the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.
