About the city
Ankara is the majestic capital of Turkey and the second-largest city after Istanbul. Ankara is a well-known resort city that attracts travellers with unique architectural monuments, modern entertainment centres and well-developed infrastructure. The city's name comes from angora, a soft fibre from the angora rabbit. Therefore, some animals bred in this area have become symbols of the town: Ankara cat, Ankara goat, and Ankara rabbit.
The city's most visited attraction is the Anitkabir Mausoleum, which harmoniously combines 22 buildings. Anitkabir is not only the mausoleum of Ataturk but also a museum, which is visited annually by about 3 million tourists worldwide. Ankara has many parks and open spaces, created mainly in the republic's early years, which have been well maintained and expanded ever since. Genchlik Park, the Botanical Garden and Segmenler Park are the most important and beautiful parks. Guests of the city usually like to visit the old shops on Cikrikcilar Yokusu (Weaver's Road) near Ulus, where travellers can find various things ranging from traditional fabrics to handmade carpets and leather goods.
The city is famous for its large number of mosques, one of which is the magnificent Kocatepe Mosque. The luxurious interior decoration of the Kocatepe is striking in its richness: marble, golden plates, amazing decorative tiles, colourful stained-glass windows and large crystal chandeliers. For tourists who love relaxing holidays, Ankara SPAs offer treatments such as hot springs, mineral water baths, mud and aromatherapy. The health sector is also actively developing in the city. Ankara has the world-famous Memorial Hospital, Medicana International Hospital and Medical Park Ankara Hospital. Medical centres accept patients not only from Turkey but also from many other countries.
Ankara is generally a formal city due to the parliament and heads of state. But Ankara has many fascinating museums and sights, a ski centre nearby and great nightlife. From the first minutes, the city delights with its bright oriental colour, which is in harmony with the noise of a vast metropolis.
