Bodrum is a port city in Muğla Province, in the southwestern Aegean Region of Turkey. The city was called Halicarnassus of Caria in ancient times and was famous for housing the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Bodrum Castle, built by the Crusaders in the 15th century, overlooks the harbour and the marina.
The castle grounds include a Museum of Underwater Archeology and hosts several cultural festivals throughout the year.
