“Soul of traditional Ankara”
Review of Ankara Castle

Ankara Castle

Reviewed 10 December 2017 via mobile

If you want to feel the traditional Ankara, you must spend half a day in the castle.
Car park is a challenge in the old city, so it is better driving by taxi which is quite safe and cheap.
Restaurants are a bit over priced but offer traditional food and events.

The place is full of renovated old buildings. There are a lot of antiqe shops and nice restourants and a very good view of the city

This is an open air place with a nice area to walk through and look for nick nacks, but don't expect a pay entry castle with majestic rooms and museum. Perfect round view from one of the main walls

If you come to Ankara, the castle is probably but don't get your hopes high. The place is not administered by anybody and there are absolutely no safety precautions. If you go with younger kids, you have to be extremely cautious. You can't find any information about the place. So make sure to read before you go. The castles itself of course pretty interesting and a must see however authorities must do better to make it accessible for visitors.

Ulus ankaranin gobegi yeniliklerden uzak yasayan tarih. ancak simdilerde turistler ugramiyor. kendi haline birakilmis issiz kalmis. yneinde canlandiralim.
Old town center of Ankara.. one of the most touristic place. but today tourists are lacking.. and the place is like empty although valuable.. it is like wandering on an old movie stage. more people should go there. it is a pity that tourists are lacking now..
