accommodation, ankara

by JermS

I have been searching for a place to live, preferably furnished and relatively cheaper, for 4-5 months beginning in February. something close to METU...no luck so far online, any suggestions?

Re: accommodation, ankara

Sorry The Turks are not used to pension system like in EU and USA. The old ladies dont trust foreigners. The young couples dont rent their extra room to students, girls or males A furnished apartment is costed 900-1500 US dollars.
If you are cominh to METU as a student or academicer they have their own dormitory or guset house or hotel. Contact them. If you are coming to a firm as an foreign expert your firm might pay the rente for you. There are many acencies who help the foreigners to rent a furnished flat againts a percentage of commision.
Good luck.

Travel Tips for Ankara

One of the best sites in...

by silvia-m.b

One of the best sites in Ankara is: along this avenue next to Ataturk's mausoleum. You can see the guard going from one point to another like in London. Also is nice see the Ankara's city view. Probably one of the best points to enjoy a marvellous view of this city! When I'm away from Ankara I miss the handsome guards in Ataturk's mausoleum!

You can reach Ankara by all...

by yakacik

You can reach Ankara by all means except the SEAWAY.So dont look for ticket to Ankara in What most people do they take buses as it is faster. You can see in this link 2 of the main bus companies and their contact information.I must confess that the traffic in Ankara is much better then Istanbul as this is a new city having large streets.

Once in Ankara I called a taxi , soonest I was in the driver asked me if I was from Istanbul. I asked him how he knew that .He said : very easy here people never jump fust in the cabs like in your city. You in Istanbul sometimes are very happy and rushy when you can finally get a taxi in rainy or cold days.....
Very detailed information on how to reach Ankara

Anit Kabir- The mausoleum of Kemal Mustafa Ataturk

by suvanki

For me, this is my favourite place to visit in Ankara. I like the vast, open spaces, and unfussy architecture, with the solemn, but unstuffy air of respect.
I've visited it twice, both times with my friend Bilal and his friends who were born and have always lived in Ankara, so this has probably added to my experience of the importance of this place to them and their families.

Anit Kabir (ah-NUHT-kah-beer) means monumental tomb.

Yes, this vast site spreads for over one km square, engulfing the whole hillside towards the centre of Ankara

The mausoleum is situated in landscaped parkland, with paths and steps leading to a courtyard, which is surrounded by the sarcophagus of Ismet Inonu (Ataturks close friend and Chief of Staff), and a museum housing personal effects and memorabilia of Ataturk.

Opposite Inonus' sarcophagus is the Mausoleum of Ataturk.

The mausoleum was built between 1944 and 1953. Its' design appears modern, with straight lines, and light stonework, but there are carvings and statues depicting Hittite, Roman and Seljuk influences on Anatolian history.

The rectangular Mausoleum has an exterior of pillars, 10 at the front and the back, 14 at each side, each stretching the full height of the building.

Exerpts from Ataturks speech made on the 10th Anniversary of the Turkish Republic, are inscribed on the wall, which is near the entrance.

Entering the tomb, through huge bronze doors, the interior walls are made of red marble, with the ceiling decorated in gold , with Turkish motifs. The tomb itself is below the huge marble monolith.

15 years after his death, (On November 10th 1938 in Istanbul) Kemal Mustafa Ataturks body was transported from the Ethnographic Museum, where it had lain over these years, then was finally laid to rest here.

World leaders, politicians and dignitaries,visiting Ankara, usually visit this site to pay their respects, as do hundreds of Turkish citizens and visitors from around the world.

Free admission
Open 0900 - 1200 13.30- 1700 April - Sept - closes 1600 Oct - March.

Sihhiye

by WulfstanTraveller

Sihhiye, with Abdi Ipekci Parki, is in the central part of the city and a great location to visit. One might argue that it is the real heart since it's right between Kizilay, the modern commercial centre of the city and nearby Ulus, the older early Republican centre of the city and home to a great many government buildings and ministries. The park is nice and Sihhiye is home to two of Ankara's most famous landmarks, the giant modern Hatti/Hittite monument in the centre of Ataturk Bulvari, and the statue I know simply as Eller ("The Hands"), a pair of giant hands sticking out of the ground. Regardless of whether one actually likes the latter, I doubt anyone could dispute that it is at the very least a very striking monument and to me it evokes a very strong emotional feeling. Some find it simply scary and creepy, others find it evokes a feeling of anguish or pain or longing, others simply find it striking.

Column of Julianus

by serkanen

The Julianus Column on the park at Hükümet Meydanı, Ulus is of Byzantium style and has no inscriptions on it. The height is 15 meters and contains several rings around its body. It is supposed that the column was constructed in the honor of Emperor Julianus (AD 361-363) while he was passing through Ankara.
