About Muğla



Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University is situated in Muğla Province, the southwest corner of Turkey       where the Aegean Sea meets the Mediterranean. As a vital centre for Turkish    and world tourism,   its legendary gulfs, bays, and beaches; magnificent landscapes and forests; and impressive cultural  heritage of past Anatolian Civilizations have led to      the popularity of nearby holiday    destinations, such as Gökova, Bodrum, Marmaris, Datça, Fethiye, Milas and Dalyan.

The Muğla region, called ‘Caria’ in ancient times, has for centuries been a leading social, cultural, and historical centre. Muğla, the province's capital, is a modern and peaceful city famous for its unique architecture. Since the economic development of the city mostly relies on tourism, the natural, cultural, and historical beauties of Muğla      have always been protected. It is indeed a city keeping the past for the future.

There are two international airports in the province, Dalaman and Bodrum. Muğla province, which accommodates 19 marinas and slips, has the longest coast in Turkey, 1124 kilometres. Muğla, covered with rich forests, has a Mediterranean climate, hot and dry in summer and warm and rainy in winter.

Living in Muğla means being only an hour away from the most talked about tourist destinations. Famous antique cities, such as Halicarnassos, Knidos, Mylasa and Kaunos, hundreds of magnificent bays with unmatchable beauty, places like the Blue Lagoon, the Caretta Caretta Beach, the Patara Beach, the Butterfly Valley are only a few to mention, which make the city as attractive as it can be for 3 million tourists hosted annually.

When the academic year starts, the city welcomes students who dramatically change the population and appearance of the city.
