Streetlife in turkish cities is really vibrant you can feel the difference when you
come from nothern Europe. Of course it has much to do with culture but is has also something to do with the age of the people. Turkey is a very young nation you feel the energy and you hear and see young people everywhere.

Ankara seems to be an interesting mix between Asia and Europe. I really like the street life and the scale of the buildings.

I once saw a picture of Ankara from the 1970's and it looked appalling. In the past 40 years, things seem to have changed for the better, according to your pics

and what are the symbols of the city? aren't ther like squares or big lanes? It's a city of 3 million people, when I look at your pictures I would think it's a much smaller city. Maybe there still coming right?

Well I have tried to show different neighborhoods. Unfortunately I don't have a private helicopter otherwise I would show you how big Ankara actually is. Smybols hmm difficult I can say the Ankara castle but historic symbols do not really say much about the city, same goes for Istanbul another smybol of Ankara is Anitkabir the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. The most known square in Ankara is the Kizilay square.

Weather? Lol Ankara has harsh continental climate, so it doesn't have much to do with weather.

Ankara is relatively new so it doesn't have any squares or pedestrain lanes. It was built around 30s for the new Turkish Republic so there aren't big squares, lanes or "covered bazaars" you see in every Turkish city. Although it's well planned and greener than most of Turkish cities.

That's Ankara's symbol, Hittite Eti.



As DU999 mentioned, there's a citadel with old Turkish houses that a tourist might find interesting but other than that Ankara doesn't have much to offer for an average tourist.

Every turkish city has long summer times you can't say that about european cities you know a few days with sun rays is not the same.
