Ankara, The Capital Of The Republic Of Turkey

Almost every country has its capital. We want to see the capital in every country we go to. This week we will introduce our capital city, Ankara. The city in the Central Anatolia region of our country is waiting to fascinate you with its history

Ankara, the capital, ranks second after Istanbul as a population crowd. The city, which is politically the center of Turkey, is also at a central point as a geographical location. the history of the capital ankara dates back to the Bronze Age. Ankara, home to empires throughout history, has the distinction of being the most closely observed city in the history of the Republic. During the years of the war of independence, Mustafa Kemal and his friends designated Ankara as their command center. One of the reasons for this has been its geographical location. Anitkabir is one of the places we would recommend to those who want to witness this deep-rooted history to see first when they step into Ankara. This is the Tomb of the founder of the Republic of Turkey, The Great Leader Atatürk. It is the most important and meaningful symbol of the city. November October may April 23, May 19, November 10 or October 29, especially on special occasions, thousands of people come here every year. The structure consists of two main sections: the Anıt Blok and the Barış Park. When you enter through Tandogan gate, you are greeted with thousands of plants and trees of Barış Park.You can reach the mausoleum via The Lion Road.
