Things to do in Ankara
It is the center of the Turkish Government, and houses all foreign embassies. The city was famous for its long-haired Angora goat and its prized wool (mohair), a unique breed of cat (Angora cat), white rabbits and their prized wool (Angora wool), pears, honey, and the region’s muscat grapes.
Ankara is a residential and political city, meaning it is quieter and more organised compared to cosmopolit Istanbul. The capital also doesn’t fall short on sightseeing, with the Mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the Ethnography Museum, and the Ankara Kalesi (and surrounding old city) deemed as favourites.
Best time to visit Ankara
