Modern and interesting but far from being something close to Istanbul or Izmir

Well I have been in both cities Izmir and Ankara. I think Ankara is in some points better and has much potential but unfortunately it is underrated.

I was an exchange student living in Ankara 15 years ago. I'm embarrassed to admit that I have forgotten many of the aspects of the city, but looking at this thread has helped me to recollect some of my experiences.

I must say, I wasn't very impressed overall with Ankara when I lived there. Some parts felt boring/stale, due to the predominance of government facilities. Other parts felt run down. The suburbs were just beginning to expand.

That said, these photos show how far the city has come in the last 15 years. It looks much more vibrant and exciting. Part of the problem for me was that I spent much of my year living well outside of the city, due to my host families. One of my friends lived in Cankaya and I think she was definitely in a better location.

Also it's nice to see that there's better public transportation in place currently. I used to either have to ride a bus or take a Dolmus everywhere I wanted to go. Blah.

Anyway, thank you all for posting these great photos. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

the city seems a little lifeless, stale, it also seems to be tougher to live in in comparisson to western turkey, economicaly and socialy

it truely is a government city

I am back with few new pics and this time I also want to show you guys some pics from Sogutözü district.
Sögütözü is actually a business district which is under construction. However already completed, quality low and high rise buildings gives an impression of how the district will look like in near future.
