Inspired by Mila's Istabul's skyline thread, I decided to make a thread about Ankara since we had a funny debate there about which one is better.I'm not intending to prove Ankara is better(tho to me it is ) as Ankara is not comperable to Istanbul.

Also, I wanted to mention that Ankara is the capital of Turkey, not Istanbul

And the pictures

What a lovely country Turkey is!

It has everything. A perfect mix.

I like its history(esp. Ottoman)

I'm going to ask you something a little off topic, dudes.

Is Ataturk's mausoleum like Lenins mausoleum.I mean can you actualy see the body(like in Lenin's mausoleum.) or it is more like a tomb or something.

Thanks.

No, his body is buried in Islamic ways in a grave room, downstairs and upstairs, where the visitors come, there's a big monolithic block, symbolizing his grave.
