Konya and Cappadoccia

Heart of Anatolia – and the capital of Salajeek

Konya is a city in the Central Anatolia Region of Turkey. It takes an overnight train from Istanbul to reach Konya.

Trains are good and comfortable… and almost on time. You can buy the tickets from the main station in european Istanbul even if you dont know any turkish. The trains departs from the asian side of istanbul though, called Hyderpasha Station.



Konya was the capital of Seljuks between 1071 and 1308.
