Ankara to Iran (Tabriz, Tehran) connection (via Van)

by misiek_wawa

Is there a regular bus connection from Ankara to Tehran or Tabriz in Iran?
I've found (on the Internet) a lot of bus connections from Istambul (to Iran) but I coundn't noticed even one from Ankara.
How about connections from Ankara to Van and from Van to Tabriz?
Has somebody experienced such a trip?
Thanks for hints.

Hi Miki,

Mot me, but my friend did go to Iran by rail. The web site is above. I also wish to go there one day, prefer the train.

If there are buses from Istanbul to Iran, I can easily estimate that they will go through Ankara; that is the main road.

Ankara to Van, many buses. Inside Turkey, you can find buses between every single point, don't worry.

Cheers.
Alper.

Certainly. Lot of buses go Istanbul-Ankara-Tehran, but IMO usualy via Agri - Dogubeyazit, not via Van. Ankara - Van ... many buses a day. Van - Tabriz ... I'm sure you can go via Agri or Dogubeyazit and there board the long distance buses to Iran. I'd bet 70:30 there is no direct bus Van-Tabriz. You can try to call one of many bus companies, e.g. Bestvantur Otobüs (434 – 226 78 00), and ask. (They'll know even if they don't operate the bus.)

You can also go by mentioned train TransAsya. The only disadvantage is the train goes 3x-4x slower than the bus. If you want to get from point A to point B, i'd vote for the bus (as locals do). If you would also enjoy 2 days on scenic but very slow train, go by the train.

Travel Tips for Ankara

good place to fill in luggages...

by voyageur2

If you have not a strict schedule for business needs, allow enough time for shopping. Ankara offers you many alternatives and good price/quality ratio. So keep your luggage light as soon as possible while leaving your home. pay attenion to its hinterland or step climate. winters are cold and snowy, summers are hot and dry. arrange you cothes before or visit its street shops or the ones in malls. prices are reasonable mostly. recommending you a digital camera is enough for me. there are excellent trekking routes. if you decide to explore its nature, take your boots proper for outdoor conditions.

Plenty of Pide and Gozleme

by albaaust about Tevfik Kis Pide and Kebap

This was another restaurant that Tosun took us to. It was in the heart of bustling modern Ankara and seemed to be a very popular restaurant. Tosun ordered Gozleme which was very nice and kebabs enough for us to be feeling very very full. The food was excellent! Thoroughly recommend if you want to eat well and be amongst the "in" crowd. We drank a yoghurt drink with the meal which was very refreshing. The kebabs

Sitting Mother Goddess Figurine

by MalenaN

Catal Hüyük is an important site from the Neolithic period. This sitting Mother Goddess was founding the shrine of level II. She is supported by two leopards and is shown giving birth of a child between her legs.
She is made of baked clay and was found in the grain bin of the shrine. The head has been restored.

Ankara Citadel and Old Town

by WulfstanTraveller

The old town of Ankara and its citadel are located on a hill just east of Ulus. This is the oldest part, with old Ottoman houses on narrow, quiet, twisting streets. Some of the old houses are dilapidated and others are nicely restored and in great shape, some housing restaurants or hotels. The area also provides some nice cafes and eateries, and affords one nice views of Ankara, particularly from some of the cafes.

Ankara Train Station

by serkanen

Ankara Railway Station is an important center with not only being a spot of intercity transfer but also with its enlightening Ankara’s history. As soon as you set foot the walls of his stone building whisper to your ear that the operation plans of Independence War had been prepared there.

The four museums of the station take you through a journey on Turkish railway history beginning from September 23, 1856, the establishment date of railways, to the fast trains of 2000s.

The three story stone building, built for station services during the Baghdad railway construction, has been assigned to Atatürk when he arrived Ankara on December 27, 1919. Between 1920-1922 the operation plans of independence War has been prepared, many agreements and signature ceremonies were held in this building. Above all the decision of forming Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi (National Assembly) was also taken in this historical building.

The ground floor is now a museum. The coach Atatürk used to travel through the country is being exhibited next to the museum. The other museum of this station is TCDD (Turkish State Railways) Museum. The most interesting part of the station is the steam locomotives approaching from the history!!!

Recently famous Turkish jazz performers give concerts at this historical station on October 29 (Republic Day). We strongly recommend you to attend those concerts. Although crowded, you can spend cheerful time. Besides you can have warm wine and sandwiches from the stands of the cafes set for this occasion.

If you have images about Turkey such as “Midnight Express” we recommend you to visit Ankara Railway Station. You’ll have the chance to see all “expresses” traveling to different corners. You can watch Turkish people while sipping a cup of Turkish coffee in the historical restaurant of the station.

Traveling by rail is quite pleasing for those who have no hurry. Especially when you are dining in the restaurant or sipping a glass of wine the nonstop changing panorama, swiftly flowing rails, roads running parallel to railway will sure make the journey a pleasure.

Caution: The most important point you should take into consideration when traveling by rail is never and never accepting beverage or food from people you don’t know. Lately, although rare, robberies by mixing barbiturate to food and beverage are common. Therefore it’s better to be careful!!! Also as in all over the world take your valuables with you when leaving your seat or compartment.

From time to time TCDD arranges tours in Turkey with seam train. For further information on these tours just call (312) 309 05 15 and 311 06 20.
