Travel Tips for Ankara

Höyük (Tumulus)
Located with...

by jonturk

Höyük (Tumulus)
Located with the boundaries of Türkhöyük village, it consists mainly of marble columns and gravestones belonging to the Roman and Byzantine eras.
Kül Höyük
:Situated within the city limits of the town of Oyaca, take the left fork in the road about 50 km out on the Ankara-Haymana highway towards the villages of Boyalýk, Culuk, Çalýþ and Durupýnar. The tumulus is 1.5 km down this road on the right-hand side (150 m.)
There are continuing excavations going on in this medium-sized tumulus under the direction of the Museum of Anatolia Civilizations. The Hittite Cult Center found 8 km to the west near at Gavurkale indicates that this is probably an important Hittite settlement.
Besides the hidden cistern made after the grand monumental traditional Hittite architectural style, there are the remains of huge foundations which can most likely be dated back to the Early Bronze Age and the beginning of the Hittite Empire. In light of the ceramic, bronze and other archeological finds, we know that the area was inhabited about 5000 years ago. Karaoðlan
Karaoðlan is 25 km from Ankara on the Ankara-Konya road. The different strata in the tumulus have yielded remains from the following cultures: Chalcolithic, Early Bronze, Hittite, Phrygian, Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine. This is one of the most important Hittite and Phrygian sites in the Ankara Gölbaþý region. Beþtepeler Tumulus
The first excavation of the tumuluses near Anýtkabir were made in 1926 by Makridi. In 1945, during construction in the area, it became necessary to remove several of the tumuluses. Two of them were investigated and a number of clay jars and other tools belonging to the Phrygians were recovered. Experts concluded that these were contemporary with the Phrygian graves at Gordion. At this time it was realized that the Phrygians placed their dead in graves dug on level ground and then with logs built a structure over the site. The whole affair was then covered with dirt from the surrounding area to make a small hill. The dead were always buried with a number of gifts. Yumurtatepe (Demetevler) Tumulus
It is located on the left hand side of the road at the Çiftlik - Demetevler intersection. It was excavated by the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations during the 1986 and 1987 excavation seasons. The excavation resulted in the tumulus being identified as belonging to the Early Bronze Age. It is a single structure and a number of earthenware vessels were recovered.

Castles
Ankara Castle
The castle which has guarded
the city for centuries is now a symbol of Ankara. The history of the castle is as old as the history of the city itself. Though when the castle was built is not known exactly, it is commonly believed to have been built by the Romans. It was repaired and expanded by the Selçuks. It towers 110 meters above Bentdere Creek (Hatip Creek) which runs along its base.
There are two parts, an inner and an outer castle and it has over 20 towers. The outer castle encloses the old city of Ankara within its heart-shaped walls. The four-level inner castle is made partly of Ankara stone and partly of stones gathered from other structures. The two large gates of the inner castle are called the Outer Gate and the Castle Gate. The towers within the castle vary between 14-16 meters in height. Today within the castle walls there are a number of Ottoman style houses dating as far back as the 17th century. Kalecik Castle
Kalecik Castle is 78 km from Ankara on the road to Çankýrý. The castle with the magnificient spectacle of the modern town was founded upon a cone shaped hill . It is connected to the mountains in the southwest by a ridge and sit alone high above the plain formed by the Kýzýlýrmak (Red River).

Driving to Ankara from Istanbul

by WulfstanTraveller

Ankara is about 5 hours' drive from Istanbul, depending on the traffic. There is an excellent toll freeway, the otoban, the whole way between the cities. It is not expensive to use and makes the drive faster and easier since it is a 1st-class highway by any world standard.

Unlike rest-stop facilities in the US, Turkish highways in this part of the country have both plentiful gasoline/petrol/filling stations, often one after another, and they have excellent rest-stop complexes with restaurants, supermarkets, et mangal (grilled-meat places), tea gardens,etc., and the food is really good. On the otoban, these are right on the highway so one need not go through a toll booth when stopping at or leaving the rest stops.

Throught eh Bolu area the terrain is very mountainous, with the road in some parts go up to over 6,000 feet elevation and in the winter one may experience heavy rain or snow. This is especially true near the city of Bolu itself, east of Duzce, where the otoban goes through a long tunnel in a high-elevation area, and south of the Gerede area near Dorukkaya, a major skiing region because it gets a lot of snow. However, the drive is normally easy and pleasant, with excellent signs, etc.

Museum of Anatolian Civilisations

by mvtouring

Our first stop this morning was the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations . Situated on the hill with Ankara's ancient Citadel, not far from Ulus Square (Metro: Ulus) you will find it. This historic caravanserai holding artifacts from up to 7500 years, including the most extensive and valuable collection of Hittite artifacts in the world.

The museum is open daily from 09:00 am to 17:00 (5 pm), closed Monday in winter.

Museum of Ethnography

by Profsmiley

This museum is easily found as you go down the Ataturk Boulevard - the main route from Ulus to Yenisehir.

It houses a fine collection of Turkish folkloric artifacts as well as artifacts from Seljuk and Ottoman mosques.

It is open every day (8:30 - 12:30, 1:30 - 5:30), except for Mondays.

Ak Kale - White Fortress

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Ak Kale (AHK kah-leh, White Fortress) is the northern tower in the walls of the fortress.
The area around and inside the citadel, being the oldest part of Ankara, contains many fine examples of traditional architecture. There are also recreational areas to relax. Many restored traditional Turkish houses inside the citadel area have found new life as restaurants, serving local cuisine, music.

You may watch my high resolution photo of Ankara on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 39º 56' 20.41" N 32º 51' 55.50" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Ak Kale - White Fortress .
