19 Things to Do in Ankara

19 Things to Do in Ankara, Ankara, Turkey (B)

Compared to many other cities of Turkey, Ankara, might not be a popular destination for many tourists. Pretty much everyone flocks to Istanbul, which I understand completely. It’s one of my favorite cities I have traveled to. However, the capital is very different from the bustling Istanbul, with its architecture, people, and sites. So without further ado, here are the top things to do in Ankara for three days. 

Ankara is a very old city; here you’ll find examples of Roman, Byzantine, Hellenistic, and Ottoman architectural and archeological sites. The historical center laid out on the rocky hill is one of the best representations of Ottoman architecture and incorporates the remains of the Roman period, including the Temple of Augustus and Rome, dating back to the 20th century BC, and Roman Baths.

Therefore, for history buffs, Ankara is definitely a place to be. City explorers will love wandering not only in the historic part but in the central district of the capital, Kizilay. While museum lovers will find quite interesting venues to check out. So basically, there is something for any kind of traveler.  ......
