Ankara is the capital of Turkey and the second largest city after Istanbul. It is located in the centre of the Anatolian region and is known to be the nation's administrative centre. It is home to many well-preserved Roman and Ottoman relics scattered throughout the city.
Ankara is a sprawling metropolitan that appears as a concrete jungle at a glance. However, it has much to offer to those willing to look deeper. It has several historical landmarks, museums, and mosques. It is also a green city with many parks and open spaces. The highlight of the city is Ankara Castle, a medieval citadel on a high hill overlooking Ankara.
Ankara is a huge city with several neighbourhoods. Most attractions are located around the long Ataturk Boulevard, which runs from the north to the south of the city. Ulus is the historic centre of Ankara which houses the Ankara Castle and most museums. Kavaklidere, also known as Tunali district, is another popular area. It is more cosmopolitan and is full of restaurants, cafes and pubs.
Once known as Angora, Ankara gave its name to the famous Angora wool, which is shorn from Angora rabbits, Angora cats and Angora goats. Ankara is also known for its pears, muscat grapes, honey and doner kebab.
