Of course, here we are building 18 mechanical plants, the 19th of which is new. In addition, there are 32 ski tracks and 102 kilometers of ski tracks. In order to meet the needs here at international standards, 6 additions are being made to our shops with new cafes, new ski equipment supply places, and they are in the process of being completed. In addition, our Ski Academy Center has been brought to a position to serve as our Spor A.Ş. will raise our children. That build is complete. Again, in addition to all these, 3 of our new hotels are put into service this season, and the construction of 3 hotels continues.”

Emphasizing that they do not describe Kayseri as a mere ski resort, Mayor Büyükkılıç said:
“As you know, our passenger potential continues to come to our city, especially to our ski resort, with charter flights from abroad, especially from Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Czechia and Belarus. They will most likely come from Latin America this year. I would also like to remind you of our tourist potential, which will create a destination combined with Cappadocia. We do not describe Kayseri as a mere ski resort. We do not want our Erciyes to fit in four months like this. Together with our High Altitude Center, we continue our efforts to provide opportunities for highland tourism and other activities here. Our High Altitude Center has already started to gain great appreciation both at home and abroad. Again, we are building 6 more facilities and football fields in order to meet the needs here. We also have tennis courts. In addition to this, our works continue rapidly with the logic of creating a second center with our indoor swimming pool in Olympic standards, our gym, gymnastics tracks and fitness centers, as well as our hotel planning there. With all these beautiful developments, I want to carry the potential of our Kayseri further, to be instrumental in the better commemoration of our city, to make this beautiful city, which is an industrial and commercial center, to be remembered with its historical, cultural and other tourism potential.”
“GASTRONOMY IS OUR MUST HAVE”
President Büyükkılıç described gastronomy values as indispensable and stated that they will continue to work in this direction, “I would like to remind our friends not to ignore our features and beauties in the field of gastronomy, which is our sine qua non, brought to us by different civilizations. I wish you good luck with this work. Hopefully, our businesses that are suitable for the spirit and nature of our Kayseri take place here with the method of tenders, and they will respond to this beautiful need. This is a city of brands, and of course, our Erciyes, which carries the brands within its body, makes it a brand, not only with its sausage, pastrami and ravioli, but with the logic of 'we are there' in every field, but I say it because it deserves it. I hope not to stop, I say keep running," he said. President Büyükkılıç also met with local and foreign tourists during his visit to the tradesmen in Erciyes. sohbet He.
