Turkey - 

Ankara and Western Anatolia

 

The bustling capital of Turkey, can appear rather soul less and cold in its modernity as it rises from the plains of Western Anatolia. When Ataturk chose it as his capital in the 1920s, his determination to westernize led him to commission the German Architect, Herman Jansen, to build a thoroughly new city. Today, most tourist visit Ankara for its outstanding museum.

Western Anatolia may seem somewhat bleak and inhospitable, yet the vast steppes, remote towns have much to offer the visitor. Ankara, the efficient modern capital, has excellent transport links to the rest of the country
