We need to be close to U..S embassy. something around $40-$50 a night. Please reply if you know any place. By the way, we are 3 adults and 1 kid.

I would be surprised if you can find an apartment for that price in that area (Kavaklidere)! Best bet close to the U.S. Embassy would probably be the Best Western Hotel Ikibin 2000. But, you might ask what is the real price of this: http://www.gabinohome.com/en/advert/95012

Soguksu National Park-Kizilcahamam

by voyageur2

Ankara has various points of interest. Pages can never include its richness completely. Kizilcahamam is one of my favourites. Soguksu National Park is only 100 kms away from Ankara and that easily makes Kizilcahamam a place to go. It is possible to access higher points of mountains. Views are great over there, its maximum height is 1800 metres. Enjoy clear skies and feel the magic of pine trees...

Ice Cream, Puddings, Baklava, Salep

by WulfstanTraveller about Mado

Mado is a chain of cafes serving a range of food but primarily known for ice cream and, to a lsightly lesser degree, a range of other desserts. One can, however, find a small range of savoury (non-dessert) food as well, specifically borek, the savoury version of baklava, and a breakfast menu. Otherwise, it's all ice cream (dondurma), with a large range of flavours, baklava, and puddings. I've had better in Turkey, but only at small places and the ice cream, baklava, and puddings here are excellent. They also have very good salep, but it's not cheap, tea, coffee, etc.

In Ankara, there is a very nice Mado right in the heart of Kizilay, just east of the square and in the Sakarya Caddesi shopping and eating neighbourhood.

As is common, there is eating downstairs plus a smoking area upstairs. Very good kazandibi, great baklava and salep (hot, thick, and very tasty), and great ice cream.

Pay your respects to Ataturk!!

by albaaust

Anýtkabir, is the mausoleum built for Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, founder and first president of the Turkish republic. We caught a taxi to this complex. At the entrance there is a search of bags and a long walk to the paved walkway which then leads to the mausoleum. At the paved walkway there are two towers and two immense groups of statues. The female statue group in national garments represent “the proud, sedate, determined Turkish woman” in great sorrow. The wreath they carry represents Turkey’s productivity. The male statue group represent the soldiers, young people and intellectuals and the farmer in deep sorrow, and longing. The paved walkway (lion road) with 24 lion statues on both ends leads to the tomb and represents power and tranquility. The lion statues are done in Hittite style, because of Atatürk’s love of Turk and Anatolian history. There is 42-step stairway leading to the mausoleum. In the middle of the stairs is the “address pulpit”. One side of the marble pulpit is decorated with circular geometrical motifs, and Atatürk’s remark, “Sovereignty is without doubt, the Nation’s.” On the front is Atatürk’s address to the Turkish youth, which begins Turkish Youth! Your first duty is to forever preserve and defend the Turkish Independence and the Turkish Republic. The whole complex conveys a certain amount of grandeur atop the hill with views of Ankara and it stark, very white, huge columns. The guards in front of the mausoleum are also quite impressive. Try to time your arrival when the guards change. Free
