Let's look on one of the greatest natural wonders in the whole Roman Empire. The rock city. It is located
approximately 280 kilometers to the north from Optimia, and it is very popular among inhabitants of whole empire,
being one of the largest rock cities in the world. It is known for huge hoodoos, beautiful rocks and rock
formations, and fascinating, rare flora.
The path leads us through canyon to the large forest located in the center of the rock city, what is located
further to the north.
The river there is not so big, but it is the same river what is flowing near the Optimia, and is about one
hundred times larger. The forest is most dense there, and in the other parts of the rock city are beginnine massive
fields of eroded, mostly sandstone, rocks.
Forest finally ends and first groups of sandstone rocks can be seen.
Just near the forest is also located very famous rock formation, called rock slug. It is one of the three arches
located in the park.
Finally, in the further north area of the park the vegetation is becoming more scattered among the rock formations, and
typical semi-desert areas are there. There also rock fields gradually end, replaced by typical anatolian vegetation and
land. The rock city is undoubtely one of the most impressive things what you can find near The Optimia Magna.
