Ankara is Turkey’s capital and second largest city. Located in the Central Anatolia Region and home to the Grand National Assembly of Turkey, Ankara became the capital city at the time the Republic of Turkey was established.
The hub of many great civilisations, with a history dating back to the Stone Age, Ankara and its landmarks are still of great importance in the present day.
Ankara is positioned in the middle of Anatolia and has a continental climate, so the winters are cold and snowy and the summers are hot and dry.
Famous for its great museums, parks, honey, Kalecik Karasi grapes, wines and many other cultural and historical assets, Ankara welcomes visitors any time of the year.
