Ankara Citadel (Hisar), Ankara

3.2
Sitting on top of a hill above the city, Ankara Citadel (Hisar) dominates the scenery with its 14-16 m (46-53 ft) high Byzantine walls. Dating back some 3,000 years, the complex still swarms with activity today and boasts ruins and centuries-old monuments. Here you can see mosques from the 12th century and ancient marble sarcophagi on one side of the road, and order a meal on the other. See homes of the locals that preserve the classical architectural style. Not only are the buildings authentic, but the lifestyle here hasn't changed much; domestic animals walk around backyards and people still beat skeins of wool on the roads.

  • First, let me tell you about transport have a fairly easy access once the nation can take a taxi or your own vehicle if you're heading to a place that you cannot check parking problem. After parking your car in the narrow streets of Nice you start on a journey to the Castle ulaşığınızda was a discouraging and rises of bad odors. but when you walk in there walls are conscious that you understand that it's worth it. There's a really nice views if you're here, I think you should go after Eating Anıtkabirden I think somewhere in the first place. Have fun

  • Situated in the heart of the historic area of Ankara, a beautiful place. Despite the ugly houses later in Ankara is one of the places must be visited. You can watch it here on a very large part of Ankara. There is also a lot of places to visit on your skirt. Therefore, should have a field day here.
