Inspire by the famous fantasy novel and movie, The Lords of the Rings, the municipality in Sivas province has built underground homes.
In The Lord of the Rings, hobbits are fictional and tiny humanoid race in the Middle-earth. This human race is residing in their underground hobbit homes built in hillsides, downs, and banks.
“We are planning to increase this number to 40 or 50 in the future. People are staying at these houses for a few days to relieve their exhaustion,” Aydın said.
Aydın stated that these houses are cool in summer and warm in winter and added that people in Turkey, Europe and Far East are making reservations.
“There are many people in Europe, who want to make reservations as there are many Turkish people living there. Reservation demands are also coming from Far East countries, including Malaysia,” he said and hoped the demand will increase in the future.
