Heart of Turkey
Turkey's capital and second-largest city, Ankara supports a large population of foreign diplomats and young students, contributing to the city's international feel. A sparsely populated town until the beginning of the 20th century, Ankara today covers a wide metropolitan area, home to nearly 4.5 million people. Although many travelers use this city merely as a convenient stopover on their way to the country's popular tourist resorts, Ankara offers a diverse culinary scene and a lively nightlife. Turkey's spiritual, cultural, and political center, the city also boasts a renowned museum of Anatolian civilizations, as well as an imposing mausoleum of Ataturk, the father of the modern Turkish state. Use our Turkey vacation maker site to arrange your visit to Ankara and other destinations in Turkey.
