Muğla: A University City at the Heart of Tourism 

The  province of Muğla, located in the southwest corner of Turkey where the  Aegean Sea meets the Mediterranean, includes popular holiday  destinations, such as Gökova, Bodrum, Marmaris, Datça, Milas, Dalyan and  Fethiye. With its beautiful resorts, impressive ruins of past civilizations, magnificent landscapes and vast beaches, thermal waters, rich flora and fauna, as well as accommodations, restaurants and entertainment choices to suit every taste, this region has something to offer to everyone. The Muğla region, called ‘Caria’ in ancient times, has been a  leading social cultural, and historical centre for centuries. The first  known inhabitants of the region between the Dalaman and Meander rivers  were ‘Carians,’ existing as early as 2000 BCE. Since then, numerous  ancient societies and Anatolian civilisations, including Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk, and Ottoman people, have existed here.
