    Ankara – the capital of the Province

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written May 22, 2009

    Ankara has gone by several names over the ages: The Hittites gave it the name Ankuwash before 1200 BC. The Galatians and Romans called it Ancyra. In the classical, Hellenistic, and Byzantine periods it was known as Ánkyra.

    Museum of Anatolian Civilizations

    by Paulie52 Written Dec 24, 2006

    This museum has it all, with artifacts from the earliest origins of Man all the way to present. An amazing number of ancient cultures controlled Ankara at one time or another. Therefore the displays range from paleolithic to Bronze Age to Iron Age to Classical Greek to Roman, etc. It is truly an incredible range of noteworthy art and artifacts.

    Wikipedia calls it "one of the richest museums in the world" and I have to agree. Well worth the $7 or $8 to see. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Museum_of_Anatolian_Civilizations)

    Oh, and while in the city, go check out the Attaturk Mausoleum. I hear it is worth the trip, but I haven't made it there yet.

    Anatolian History Museum

    by alpkara Written Jun 26, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The biggest museum in Ankara and also the biggest museum in the world about Anatolian history.
    I do not have a great knowledge about this place as I am not interested in history very much but that is the most important place to see in Ankara if you are interested in history or culture tourism.

    Panoramic View from Atakule

    by alpkara Written Jun 26, 2005

    If you want to see a nice panoramic view of Ankara' you shall go to Atakule take the elevators to the top and enjoy the city.
    I can advice you to do this at sunset as Ankara is very flat to the west and sunsets are nice in Ankara.
