Travel Tips for Ankara

Ankara Gençlerbirligi SK

by Dirim

Gençlerbirliði (Union of Juveniles) is a sports club from Turkey. But Gençlerbirliði is best known with its football team playing for the top positions in Turkish Super (Premier) League. The name of the team comes from the “myth” of the foundation. Gençlerbirliði was established by high school students and teachers in Ankara on 14 March 1923 just before the establishment of Republic of Turkey. The colours of our team are red and black. The fans of Gençlerbirliði are calling themselves “alkaralar”, “kýzýl-kara” (synonyms for “red-blacks”), “alkara keçileri” (Alkara is the synonym of red-black sounds like “Ankara” and keçi is the Turkish equivalent of “goat”, as Angora type of goats are famous all over the world originating from Ankara), or “Þimþekler” (Lightnings).

When Ilhan Cavcav became the chairman of the club in the late 70s, Gençlerbirliði followed a strategy on giving importance on infrastructure, by investing on young players and scoutship to find out “cheap” players from foreign countries, especially from Africa. The club gained enough financial support from the transfer of those players to other teams, which enabled Gençlerbirliði to have one of the most developed infrastructure, not only among the other Anatolian clubs, but also among the 3 oligarchic clubs of Istanbul; namely Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe and Beþiktaþ.

Museum of Anatolian Civilisations

by WulfstanTraveller

This archeological museum, in Turkish the Anadolu Medeniyetleri Muzesi, is one of the main attractions in Ankara and in fact one of the best and most important archeological museums in the world. It was awarded the 1997 European Museum of the Year Award.

Its value stems not merely from its extensive and impressive collection of artifacts - and indeed it possesses a very large volume of artifacts - but primarily from its wealth of pre-Hellenistic Anatolian artifacts. It is, in fact, by far the single most important museum in the world on the archealogy of Anatolia, which makes sense since it's in the middle of Anatolia in a city that has been in existance since at least the Hittite period.

The museum includes artifacts from the Neolithic period and the settlement of Catal Hoyuk, roughly 9,000 years old, all the way up. It has impressive Phrygian artifacts as well. However, arguably the most impressive section is the Hittite section, especially the central hall, which is full of numerous Hittite large statues and reliefs, particularly from the Neo-Hittite period of city states that followed the collapse of the Hittite Empire. It includes some famous artifacts, including Hittite sphinx gate guards from Alaca Hoyuk, a large relief from the King's Gate in Hattusa, and early Hittite and Hatti bronzes.

Finally, the museum is also noteworthy for the location itself, actually two 15-century Ottoman buildings. These are a bedesten and kervansaray or han, commercial buildings for trade built during the reign of Fatih Mehmet II (Mehmet the Conqueror).

Anýtkabir Street of Lions

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The approach at the monument is a 262 meters long pedestrian walkway that is lined on both sides by 12 pairs of lions carved in a style like the Hittite archaeological finds. The lions represent Anatolia and are sitting to simultaneously represent both power peace. There is a 5 cm. gap between the paving stones on the Street of Lions to ensure that visitors take their time and observe respectful behavior on their way to Atatürk's tomb.

The park that surrounds the monument is called a Peace Park in honor of Atatürk's famous expression "Peace at home, peace in the world." It contains around 50,000 decorative trees, flowers and shrubs in 104 varieties, donated from around 25 countries.
