    The ingenuity of creating this underground city is amazing.
    This ancient city was built by hollowing out volcanic granite called "tufa." The larger areas and chambers are connected to each other by tunnels and there is a pipe communication system. The Byzantines in this area also built underground Christian churches to evade Roman capture and control. This complex has a total of 10 floors and housed up to 60 K people for up to three months at a time.

    Less Known Underground City Complex
    Özkonak Underground City is one of the underground cities in the Cappadocia region. Less famous and smaller compared to Derinkuyu and Kaymaklı, but this one has unique features compare to others with its pipe communication system reaching each of its levels. Parking are quite easy at the entrance of the site. Walking inside the tunnel system require us to bend a bit at several location and we completed visit the area within 2 hours.

    Interesting way of life
    I was so glad our guide took us to this underground city. This one is smaller and less crowded. Once you've seen one city you've seen them all. So it was good for my claustrophobic husband to go to this shorter city. Very interesting how the people lived.

I was a bit disappointed by this underground city, as I had a huge expectations and I thought that I will access multiple floors and the visit itself will be for 2 hours or so. In reality, 2 floors were accessible and the visit was for something less than 1 hour. I think this might have been caused by a tour guide from our tour that didn't make the visit of the place very interesting for us.

The group was brought to this underground city one of many in the region, it was an amazing visit how the locals carved rooms from the local stone, and lived there, seems similar to sites I have visited in Israel.
Worth the visit

The entire intricate underground city of Onkonak was carved out of the soft volcanic tuff rocks. This was one of several underground cities found in Cappadocia. The Hittites, Phrygians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, and later by early Christians carved elaborate rooms into the soft volcanic rocks. The structures served various purposes, including protection from invasions, religious practices, and practical living spaces.

I loved the experience, everything underground was left the way it was thousands Kd years ago, but it was not for people who had difficulty walking, there were areas where you literally had to really bend and crawl to get to the other side

28/08/2022 Özkonak Underground City is an underground city that every enthusiast should visit for these adventures. We visited five underground cities in Cappadocia, each one is unique and mysterious. I recommend to visit, even for people, who manage their claustrophobia from narrow dark corridors and tunnels, at least like me... We carry a strong light with us.

While smaller than the other touristed underground cities, Özkonak gives you a good feel for how the people used and occupied these spaces. The engineering behind their defensive structures was very impressive, and easy to understand. A great advantage of Özkonak is that it isn't at the top of the tour bus list (because of it's modest size). A disadvantage, however, is that they don't practice any form of traffic control... visitors have to take it upon themselves to know when to squeeze through these narrow passageways. Unfortunately for us, a group of 30+ tourists came into the small chamber we were exploring and made it quite difficult to get out! Nevertheless, well worth a visit.

Nice but very small. After taking tens of kilometers, you have to pay for parking on an empty street. It took relatively short time to finish visiting. I would recommend Derinkuyu if you want to see an underground city.
