Located in western-central Turkey, Afyon has depended on agriculture since the Hittite era (19001300 BCE). Like most of Anatolia, Afyon survived centuries of invading or occupying civilizations and rulers right up to the Ottoman demise in the mid-twentieth century. A large proportion of the economy depended on feeding armies. The city's chief enterprises are still farm- or rural-based. Poppies are an important crop. A local, state-run alkaloid factory refines poppy straw into opiates, supplying close to one-third of pharmaceutical opium to world markets. The city is also famous for a rich, clotted cream produced as a regional specialty. Twenty-first-century Afyon is a conservative city with many devout Muslims. The towering black citadel that overlooks the town is believed to have been a refuge for Byzantines during the first few centuries CE. The Greek invading army occupied Afyon, but were driven out in 1921 by Mustafa Kermal (18811938; later known as Ataturk, "Father of Turkey"), the future founder of modern Turkey. The rout of the Greeks at Afyon made possible the goal of an independent Turkish state. Besides Afyon City popular for its natural thermal Spa bath as 5* hotel copmlex facilities with toursim area.

Il viaggio sia in Turchia che in Giordania è andato molto bene, e come ho un attimo vi voglio mandare un commento particolare sugli alberghi e sui piccoli inconvenienti da migliorare. Voi mandatemi una vostra pubblicità dettagliata che io la giro ad un mio amico che ha un'agenzia di viaggi, ma non ha nessun contatto con agenzie locali in Turchia e in Giordania. La guida Rasim Korkmaz è stato perfetto così come l'autista e il pulmino.
Vi riscriverò appena posso,un caro saluto.
