Ankara

Trip Planner Europe  /  Turkey  /  Ankara Province  /  Ankara

Heart of Turkey

Turkey's capital and second-largest city, Ankara supports a large population of foreign diplomats and young students, contributing to the city's international feel. A sparsely populated town until the beginning of the 20th century, Ankara today covers a wide metropolitan area, home to nearly 4.5 million people. Although many travelers use this city merely as a convenient stopover on their way to the country's popular tourist resorts, Ankara offers a diverse culinary scene and a lively nightlife. Turkey's spiritual, cultural, and political center, the city also boasts a renowned museum of Anatolian civilizations, as well as an imposing mausoleum of Ataturk, the father of the modern Turkish state. Use our Turkey vacation maker site to arrange your visit to Ankara and other destinations in Turkey.

Where to stay in Ankara

Among the Roman ruins and citadels of the city of Ankara sits a collection of glitzy, upscale chain hotels. This cosmopolitan city may not be the best choice for the budget-conscious, so if shelling out a lot of money isn't your prerogative, look a little north of the city core to the independent hotels which are a bit more moderately priced. Alternatively, opt for an authentic, family-run Ottoman inn or boutique hotel. You'll find only one hostel here, which tends to fill up quickly.
