Travel to Turkey

Day 6 Ankara - Istanbul

Turkey


 

Ankara: Early in the morning we will visit the Hittite Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, which found traces of civilizations ranging from the Neolithic to Roman times. The central part is dedicated to the Hittites, who lived in Anatolia since the nineteenth century until the thirteenth century BC. It was one of the great civilizations of the Bronze Age. Also highlights the collection of Roman remains discovered in the city (part of a theater, statues and busts).

Kocatepe Mosque, recently built in Ottoman design, has four minarets. It is one of the largest in the world and has a capacity for 20,000 devouts. Also spotted Ankara Castle, located on top of a hill and visible from many parts of the city.
