Bodrum is an Aegean Sea port (locode TRBXN) and city in Turkey's Mugla Province (southwestern Anatolia Peninsula/Asia Minor) with population around 40,000. It is a seacoast town with sleek yachts anchored in twin bays under the walls of the medieval castle of Saint Peter, built by the crusading Knights of Saint John during the 15th century. Bodrum is one of Aegean's prettiest tiny resort towns but has also become more popular. Ships arrive at the ferry pier close to the Castle of Saint Peter, set on a point splitting the inner and outer harbors. The castle was created by the Knights of Saint John during the 15th century and boasts various dungeons, towers, courtyards, and interesting museums.

Bodrum (Turkey) cruise port

Following the Coronavirus crisis, in 2022 Port Bodrum reported a record year with handled 101 cruise ship calls and ~100,000 passengers. The successful season made Bodrum Turkey's 3rd busiest cruise port - after Kusadası and Istanbul. The Port's largest so far cruise liner is RCI-Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey of the Seas (max passenger capacity 4800 plus 1300 crew).

Bodrum owes its fame to Mausolus, a man long dead, and his renowned "Mausoleum", one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. The mausoleum's remains are disappointing though imaginatively restored, as most of the intriguing statues and friezes are in the London Museum. The amphitheater has been restored and is currently used for festivals. The city is famous as the birthplace of the Greek historian Herodotus.
