Ankara Highlights

If you are looking for tours in Ankara, here we tell you everything you need to know.

Ankara is the capital city of Turkey and is located in the central part of the country. It has a population of over 5 million people, making it the second-largest city in Turkey after Istanbul.

Ankara has a rich history that dates back to the Hittite Empire, which was one of the earliest civilizations in the world. The city has also been ruled by the Phrygians, Lydians, Persians, Romans, Byzantines, and Ottomans.

Today, Ankara is a modern and cosmopolitan city that serves as the political and administrative center of Turkey. It is home to many government buildings, embassies, and international organizations, as well as several universities, museums, and cultural centers.

Ankara is also known for its traditional cuisine, which includes dishes like kebab, baklava, and  Turkish delight. The city is also famous for its Angora wool, which is used to make high-quality textiles and clothing.

Tourist attractions in Ankara include the Anıtkabir, which is the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey; the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, which houses artifacts from ancient civilizations; and the Ankara Citadel, which is a historic fortress that offers panoramic views of the city.

Best Time to Visit Ankara

The best time to visit Ankara, the capital city of Turkey, is during the spring and autumn months, from April to June and September to November, respectively. 

During these seasons, the weather is mild and pleasant, with temperatures ranging from around 10 to 25 degrees Celsius (50 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit), making it perfect for outdoor activities and sightseeing.

During spring, the city comes alive with colorful flowers and blooming trees, creating a beautiful atmosphere for visitors to enjoy. 

The autumn season also offers a great time to visit Ankara, as the trees change colors and the cooler temperatures make it an ideal time to explore the city’s many parks and outdoor spaces.

Summer in Ankara can be quite hot and humid, with temperatures often exceeding 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). 

This can make it uncomfortable for some visitors, especially those who are not accustomed to high temperatures. However, if you don’t mind the heat, summer is a great time to enjoy the city’s many outdoor festivals and events.

Winter in Ankara can be quite cold, with temperatures often dropping below freezing, and snow is not uncommon. While the city can still be enjoyed during the winter months, it may not be the best time for those who prefer warmer weather.

In summary, the best time to visit Ankara is during the spring or autumn, when the weather is mild and pleasant, and the city is at its most beautiful. However, with the right preparation and expectations, the city can be enjoyed year-round.
