Other user descriptions
Bodrum (originally in Greek Ἁλικαρνασσός Halicarnassus, then Petronium, from which the current name) is a Turkish port in Muğla Province. It is located in the Bodrum Peninsula, near the northwest entrance to the Gulf of Gökova, opposite the Greek island of Kos. It is a center of tourism and yachting and was known in ancient times as Halicarnassus of Caria, famous for his mausoleum. The town has become a popular tourist resort for northern Europeans due to its attractive coastline and its active nightlife (humorously known as the "bedroom of Europe"). With a population of 32,227 inhabitants (census 2000), receives hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. While here was the birthplace of writer and historian Herodotus (484 to 420 BC.), And, as in the first century, the historian also Dionysius of Halicarnassus, the greater glory of Halicarnassus was during the rule of Mausolus satrap, who reigned in the name of the Persians from 377 to 353 a. C. When he died in 353 a. C., his wife Artemisia II of Caria, hired Greek architects Satyrus and Pittheus Paros and the best sculptors of the time to build a tomb in honor of her late husband. This tomb was one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the origin of the word "mausoleum".
