Area & Activities


Lugal Hotel is perfectly located in the most elegant part of the city centre,Kavaklidere. Close to all Ankara's main attractions, Lugal is an ideal starting point for exploring the capital city.

In addition to being Turkey’s capital and second largest city, Ankara is the country’s governmental, financial, and business epicenter. Located in the center of Anatolia on the eastern edge of the Anatolian Plateau, the city made its first recorded appearance in 1200 BC when it was conquered by the Hittites and named Akuwash.

In the proceeding years, it has been occupied by the Romans, Byzantines, Seljuks, and more, and its name has changed from Ancyra to Ánkyra to Angora, finally settling on Ankara in 1930.

Divided into the new city (Kavaklidere) and old city (Ulus), Ankara offers an engaging mix of historical and contemporary. The new city is distinguished by hotels, embassies, cinemas, and shopping malls, whereas Ulus is characterized by ancient architecture, traditional markets, and narrow winding streets.

Take in the entire cityscape at old castle ruins located on a hill overlooking Ankara. Near the castle gates, a myriad of shops stock exotic spices, dried fruit, nuts, and other goods indigenous to the region. Restaurants and cafés offer authentic Turkish cuisine and international options.

Outside of the city, archeological and natural marvels beckon. Cappadocia's "Fairy Chimneys", Ataturk's Mausoleum, and Konya's dervish shrines take guests on a trip to the past. Meanwhile, Pamukkale, lush forests, and emerald vineyards reveal some of the region’s geographical wonders.

Local Area & Activity Highlights


Anatolian Civilizations Museum

The superb Museum of Anatolian Civilizations is the perfect introduction to Turkey’s ancient past, housing artifacts carefully picked from just about every significant archaeological site in Anatolia. In the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, Anatolian Archaeology, starting from the Paleolithic Age to the present day, is displayed in a chronological order.

Anitkabir

The monumental mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk (1881–1938), the founder of modern Turkey, is perched high above the city with its abundance of marble and air of veneration. The inspiration for the artwork and statues at Anıtkabir are chosen from the War of Independence and the foundation of the Republic and Atatürk’s life.

Citadel

The imposing “Hisar” – Fortress – is the most interesting part of Ankara. This well-preserved quarter of thick walls and intriguing winding streets took its present shape in the 9th century AD, when the Byzantine emperor Michael II constructed the outer ramparts. The inner walls date from the 7th century. Inside the citadel local people still live as they would in a traditional Turkish village.
