About Ankara

Ankara is being declared as the Turkish Capital by the founder of the Republic of Turkey, Mustafa  Kemal Atatürk. After this declaration it has changed so much, so quickly. Although Ankara is not  famous for any fancy palaces and alike, it has many Hittite, Hellenistic, Roman and Ottoman  archeological sites. It has turned from an unspoiled dusty steppe into a sophisticated arena for  international affairs with its many foreign-embassies and diplomats. This city has many recreational  activities along with its museums such as the superb Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, monuments  and theaters. Being in the center of the country’s roads and railway, delicious local cuisine from any  Turkish district can easily be found in Ankara. The vibrant streets are alive and pumping; from the hip  studenty Kızılay to the booming restaurant scene in Kavaklıdere and the rocky nightlife. The landmark  of this great city is the final resting place of Atatürk, the mausoleum Anıt Kabir.
