I didn't know anything about this place until I posted the article. This is what I found out More,It would be a shame if the ban on alcohol has an adverse effect on tourism as there seems to be a lot to see in the area, I have included a link which shows places of interest. I would like to go there one day,

Afyon KH is an incredible place, history based on poppies, Afyon still is the arabic word for heroin. Great place for tourists to visit.kara hisar means black fortreess, and it is well worth seeing.but we need a drink.We often used to stop on the way down from Istanbul, maybe now we will keep goingI fear that this is the way that the current government will proceed.
