About Ankara & Turkey

Ankara (/ˈæŋkərə/ ANK-ə-rə, US also /ˈɑːŋ-/ AHNK-ə-rə) is situated in the central part of Anatolia, roughly in the central-western part of the country, with a population close to 5 million. While the country capital, this only makes it Turkey's second-largest city behind the sprawling metropolis of Istanbul.

The almost-2,000-year-old city boasts various Hattian, Hittite, Greek, Persian, Roman, Byzantine, Lydian, Phrygian, Galatian, and Ottoman influences and archaeological sites, many of which can still be viewed today, albeit in ruins.

The historical center of Ankara is situated around a hill that rises approximately over the central Ankara River, which is one of the several tributaries of Turkey’s mighty Sakarya River. Still today, on the hill, you’ll find old ruins of Ankara Castle, promising some well-preserved examples of Ottoman Roman architecture that can also be found throughout the rest of the city. Of these, the highlight is the stunning 20 BC Temple of Augustus and Rome, home to the Monumentum Ancyranum (an inscription of the Res Gestae Divi Augusti.)

Quality of Dental Care in Ankara

In terms of dental care in Turkey, it should be remembered that, in most parts, Ankara is a modern, advanced city with a highly-rated health and dental care system, particularly when you are undergoing treatment at a private clinic in Turkey.

Facilities here compare favourably with those in the UK, Europe or the US; all those listed on our site are equipped with the latest dental tech, including digital x-rays, 3D/CT scanning and computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture (CAD/CAM) technology.

This often allows for prosthetic devices, like crowns and veneers, to be made on-site, while-you-wait, even on the same day as your initial morning appointment.

As well as those low prices (which we look at in more detail in the next section), patients from the UK and Ireland can look forward to low-cost flights with the likes of Easyjet, Ryanair, Jet2, Thomas Cook and TUI from a wide range of British cities), as well as superb value-for-money hotels thanks to the pound’s favourable exchange rate against the Turkish lira.

Ankara and Turkey Travel Information

Described slightly unfavourably by Lonely Planet as being “ flat, [with] modest surroundings that are hardly the stuff of national poetry ” Turkey’s capital is still a dynamic city that’s full of life, with heaps to do and see.

But in a country promising a wide selection of world-renowned cities and holiday resorts, like Istanbul, Antalya, Izmir and Bodum, it’s no wonder why the capital often gets overlooked by international visitors

That said, travelers will find that Ankara today is a sophisticated, truly 21st-century city for international affairs, reflecting Turkey’s previously booming economy with its vibrant restaurant scene, hip boutique shops and malls, sidewalk cafes and plentiful nightlife options.

And while you won’t find any beaches in this land-locked city, a couple of the main tourist attractions include the Anıt Kabir, a colossal tribute to Atatürk, modern Turkey's founder, as well as the ever-impressive Museum of Anatolian Civilisations.

How Do I Get to Ankara? Can I Fly

Unless you’re based in a neighbouring country, the fastest, easiest and probably cheapest way to reach Ankara is by flying directly to the city’s international airport, located a few kilometres from the city center.

There are currently direct flights from London (Stansted), as well as Berlin, Paris and Zurich.
