A rather underrated capital city on the world stage, Ankara is buzzing with life and culture so bag some cheap flights to Ankara with BudgetAir as soon as you can to be a part of the vibe. Steeped in history and with all Roman roads leading to it, it is easy to see why so many people fly to Ankara on a regular basis.
Centrally placed in the country, Ankara is perfect as a base for travel to the Hittite Hills or coastal jaunts along the Black Sea. What used to be a dusty backwater is now a glittering capital with a sophisticated outlook on life and a happening cafe and street scene. It also contains two of the most important sights in Turkish history.
Must see spots in Ankara
The first is the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations, introducing novices to the complex nature of the Turkish past and offering insights into ancient civilisations. There are many artefacts to explain the story such as clay tablets discovered at a site established at the start of the second millennium BC.
The Anit Kabir is the other site revered by locals, the mausoleum and museum commemorating Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, which is entered by walking down Lion Road, lined with 24 statues of lions. Your flights to Ankara will be worth it when you wander round the citadel, the walled part of the capital. Make sure you climb the Sark Kulesi, the Eastern Tower, for great views.
For evening entertainment, head for the lively Kizilay or Kavaklidere districts, popular with students and thrumming with the beat from clubs and bars. For a more sedate night out, opt for a performance at the Ankara State Opera House.
