Ankara is a beautiful city with many attractions, including the Ataturk Cultural Center and the Haghia Sophia museum. Here are some of my favorite things to do in Ankara:
Ankara Castle is the oldest and largest castle in Ankara. It was built by the Seljuk Turks in the 13th century, when they conquered Anatolia.
The castle was used as a prison until 1950, when it became part of a museum.
The Mosaic Museum is located in the Cankurtaran district of Ankara, which has some of the best examples of Roman mosaics from this period. It was opened in 2013 and has a collection of about 2000 objects. It is open from 9:00 to 18:00 every day except Mondays, but you can also make an appointment if you want to visit it then.
The Anitkabir Mausoleum Complex is a place of pilgrimage for people of all religions, but it’s also a national pride and historical significance. It’s a place of cultural significance, too: It was built by Sultan Abdulhamid II in memory of his father and grandfather, who were buried there. And if you’re not religious yourself, perhaps you’ll find something personal about this complex that draws you in…
Kecioren’s Ethno Village Museum, located in the heart of Ankara and adjacent to the National Museum, is an educational center dedicated to the history of Anatolia. It is open daily from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., with free admission for children under 18 years old.
The museum features displays on Turkish culture and history, including artifacts from archaeological sites throughout Turkey as well as artifacts collected by archeologists over time. The museum is also home to interactive exhibits which teach visitors about life in ancient times; they can take part in activities such as cooking meals using ingredients found at archaeological sites or learn how people lived thousands of years ago through reconstructions based on archeological evidence found at those sites (such as clay tablets).
Ankara is a city of museums, parks, castles and bazaars. Istanbul’s Galata Tower may be the most famous building in this country but there are many more attractions to explore here.
Ankara has many museums including the Museum of Anatolian Civilization (ancient Greek city-states), Ankara Ethnography Museum (the history of Turkish people), Hasan Tahsin Fine Arts Museum (the paintings of one of Turkey’s most important artists) and others. Some of these museums were built by foreign architects or engineers who worked on projects for Turkey during its founding years as an independent nation state from 1923 until 1937 when it became part of Ataturk’s reforms designed to modernize Turkey into a liberal democracy based on western ideals such as freedom from religious oppression or poverty through education which required separate schools for Muslim children versus Christians/Jews etcetera…
