What is the best time for Turkey travel
In every season you can do something but I think for a traveller best times are spring and autumn. So May, june, September are the best months. But if you just want sun and beach you may come at July and August also. Now it is winter but looks like spring. Because of weather changings even March is warm.
eymir golu is a nice little lake in the outskirts of ankara.
it has a lot of cafes and is a favorite hangout for ankara intellectuals.
i really like chilling out there with some fish and beer while chatting to university turks.
the place is hard to reach though and you will need your own transport in order to get there.
Turkish is one of the world's...
Turkish is one of the world's most varied cuisines. The number and variety MEZES is staggering. The KABAB features sliced or skewered lamb
meat prepared a number of ways and ranks among Turkey's most popular dishes. Street snack, such as KOFTE and PIDE are delicious and cheap. Turkish desserts are toooo sweet and have to be tested to be believed.
Museum of Ataturk and the War of Independence
The Museum of Ataturk and the War of Independence is an excellent museum located in the Ataturk Mausoleum complex beneath the Hall of Honor. The museum has four sections. The first section features a collection of Ataturk's posessions and gifts that were given to him by various nations and political leaders. The second section contains a number of exhibits about World War I's Gallipoli battles and about the war between Turkey and Greece in the early 1920's, which the Turks call the Turkish War of Independence. A highlight of this section is two large battle tableaus that feature realistic sounds (and did a effective job of scaring our 7-year old child).
The third section of the museum is a series of exhibits about the early years of the Turkish republic, highlighting Atatturk's many reforms. The final section of the museum display's Ataturk's book collection, with many works in English and French, as well as Turkish. Underneath this section is a small cafe if you need a snack or drink after seeing all of the exhibits.
Visitors are not allowed to take photos and videos in the museum.
Temple of Augustus
Temple of Augustus was built in 10 AD by the Galatian King, Pylamenes on the ruins of the first temple constructed here that was dedicated to Goddess Men of Phrygians on 2nd century BC. The temple is formed of eight rows, with 15 pillars in each row. The testament of Augustus original of which is at Rome Temple, is engraved on the walls of the temple in Latin and Greek. This structure is also important for referring to the deeds of Augustus, which are also written in Latin. The military and political events between BC 43 and AD 14 has been specified on the testament text. The plan of the temple resembles the Artemis Temple in Manisa. In 5th Century, the temple is converted into a church by the Byzantines. Later, when Ankara was conquered by the Seljuks in the 2nd century Hacı Bayram mosque has been built next to the northwest of the temple. Today only the two walls and the door section stands.
