Ankara, One of the best cities of the world and traces back to 15th century. There are lots of old relics, museums and places which are very nicely taken care off.
It has # of museums in it, of which I liked Anatolian civilizations Museum the most and am sharing here with you. If you are interested in history and are in Ankara or plane to be, then I guess, you should also write following names with you, so that you might not forget to pay them a visit, i.e.
Museum of Ethnography
There is a strong argument in favour of visiting this collection of exhibits before traveling anywhere else in Turkey. If you find yourself in Ankara and you're in any way interested in the history of Asia Minor you should make your way here.
The museum is housed in a charming building, a restored covered market dating from the 15th Century and is easily accessible from the centre of town.
On foot you should get yourself to Ulus Meydane, easily identifiable by the large Ataturk equestrian statue on the corner.
The collections place an unusual emphasis on the earlier of Anatolia's occupiers, starting with an interesting exhibit of finds from the Catal Huyuk site, often described as the earliest known human community in the world. Other highlights include a collection of tablets, the translations of which remind you how little some things in the world have changed over the millenia.
