You Are Here – Ankara

Even though all attention is now focused on the Disney YAHs, there is one international release which was revealed today. Turkey capital is finally getting own mug from You Are Here Series, yes, I am talking about Ankara. It is also the second largest city in the country, after Istanbul. It was a small town in the beginning of 20th century, but since 1920, when Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and his associates chose it as a center of their resistance movement against the Allies, it grew into what we can see now.
So far I can identify Ankara Castle (Turkish: Ankara Kalesi) – a fortification established in as early as 7th century AD.
Interesting fact, the city gave its name to the Angora wool shorn from Angora rabbits, the long-haired Angora goat (the source of mohair), and the Angora cat.
