Cheap flights to Ankara
Often referred to as Turkey’s forgotten capital, Ankara is a vibrant and expansive city with a large student population, thanks to its raft of tertiary institutions. A sprawling city with plenty on offer for travellers, Ankara is also the administrative centre of Turkey and an excellent hopscotch point for further travels to Konya or Cappodocia. Things to do in Ankara include the must-see Anitkabir – a lavish memorial to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Tourists also like to get trendy in Kizilay Square, the heart of Ankara’s social scene and a shopping and eatery hub, or explore the Ankara Citadel with its mesmerising archaeological sites and some dizzying heights to get the heart racing. If you can see yourself wandering the streets of the Old Quarter or admiring the beauty of Kocatepe Mosque in Ankara, Universal Traveller has some cheap flights to help to get you there.

Ankara is a vast and breathtaking city, but it started out with only a few thousand in population and is often Turkey’s forgotten capital as the city of Istanbul gets all of the attention. Most of its early settlers lived around the Ankara Castle in the early 20th Century, but when the parliament of Turkey set up shop in 1920 and the Turkish War of Independence was later won, Ankara began to blossom into the mega city that it is today, and where 5 million people choose to call home. Don’t leave Ankara without seeing the Museum of Anatolian Civilisation, with artefacts of the Paleolithic and Neolithic eras on show. Make sure to sample the local street food – the kebabs on offer deserve more than just a drunken 3am going over, they’re truly the real thing and the city has an unmistakable progressive vibe that will truly draw you in.
