Ankara


Ataturk's Mausoleum:
Ataturk's Mausoleum in Ankara, Turkey
Located in central Anatolia, Ankara is the capital and second largest city in Turkey. As of 2007, the city had an estimated population of 5,019,167.

The city was once known as "Angora", and this name appears in:
  • Angora goats are goats from the area that produce a fine soft wool, which is known in English as "mohair".

  • Angora cats (Turkish: Ankara Kedisi) are a unique breed of cats from the area. They have a silky coat, and although usually known for their white color, there are in fact many varieties including black, reddish, tabby.

  • Angora wool which comes from the coat of the local Angora rabbit. Angora wool is usually blended with sheep wool before being made into garments.
When you visit Ankara, there are many ancient sites in the area that you will want to see. These include Hittite, Phrygian, ancient Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman sites. The most famous of these sites is the Temple of Augustus and Rome (also known as "Monumentum Ancyranum"), which dates back to 20 BC.

Ankara, Cappadocia & Central Turkey (Travel Adventures)
 
Product Description:
If, like me, you are a bit tired of the ethnocentric social commentary that seems to come with certain well known guidebooks then you could do worse than try this one. Simple to use, well written and accurate, I found it invaluable and couldn't fault any of its recommendations nor descriptions." -- Yurt (Amazon reviewer). Turkey is so diverse it could almost be described as a continent rather than a country. The central steppe has the peculiar rock churches and underground cities of Cappadocia and the cosmopolitan capital of Ankara. This is the main focus of this guide. Turkey's location straddles Asia and Europe. The three great Empires that ruled the country for thousands of years left a legacy of enchanting cultures and more ancient sites than even Italy or Greece can boast. Covered in detail are where to stay, where to eat, shopping, sightseeing and adventures, both cultural and physical from walking in the footsteps of St. Paul to joining in the local festivals, from yoga and Turkish baths to art classes and cooking courses. This guide combines in-depth text information with color maps & photos on almost every page. Existing guides are largely text-only or mostly graphics and lacking the practical details travelers need. The complete Turkey Adventure Guide from which this is drawn totals 688 pages.
