Derinkuyu Underground City, Cappadocia Overview

The Derinkuyu Underground City is the deepest underground city in Cappadocia, with an impressive depth of 85 metres.

The Derinkuyu city, much like the Kaymakli and the others, was made by the Christians to hide during raids. It is the deepest of the 36 underground cities in Cappadocia, and the tunnels become smaller and smaller as you go deeper, so if you're claustrophobic it's best to avoid this place. The city has all the features of a basic underground city, like cellars, wineries, stables and so on, and along with that it also had a school. Vertical staircases take you down the floors, thought less than half of the city is accessible as of now. Derinkuyu has a very elaborate system of ventilation, since fresh air is needed to be provided very deep inside the earth. This expansive system of passages and tunnels connecting an entire underground settlement is truly fascinating.
