Kayaköy Turkey Ghost Town


See one of the most famous ghost towns in Turkey in this aerial piece by AirVuz contributor and drone pilot NGreyTravels. Kayaköy is an ancient town, formerly known as Karmilassos (Greek) that was evacuated in 1923. The town's history is deadly; much of the population was made up of Greek and Christian minorities in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. During and after the war, the townspeople had their land taken or were sent to labour camps. Any who didn’t die were later forced to leave.

VP of Community Management at AirVūz I love the amazing capability of camera and racing drones, I love the spectacular videos and photos they produce, and I love to meet and celebrate the talented people who fly them! I'm a budding pilot myself and am currently practicing with my family and friends! While we currently fly with our Mavic, my husband and I have also practiced our flying with the Chroma, our Parrot, and about a dozen of the micro-drones we have around the house! And yep - our giant doggie hated them all :-) I love to hear from our enthusiastic members of our AirVūz community, so please stay in touch!
