Anitkabir (Atatürk Mausoleum)
Ankara's most visited attraction is also Turkey's most important modern pilgrimage site. Sitting on a hilltop, just to the west of the city center, is the mausoleum of Atatürk (Mustafa Kemal), the founder of the state of Turkey.
TRAVELING TO TURKEY
In 2015, Turkey was the 6th most visited country in the world. But in 2016, due to internal political unrest, acts of terrorism and conflicts in nearby Syria, they didn’t have a great year in regards to tourism. In the years that followed Turkish tourism has had its ups and downs.
