The City of Ankara

As the beating heart of Turkey, Ankara bares the footprints of many civilizations. Archaeological excavations carried out in Ankara and its environs reveal that the history of settlements in the region dates back to the Prehistoric times. Ankara was first settled as a city by the Phrygians. Gordion, the capital of Phrygia, is one of the most important ancient cities in Central Anatolia. According to the legend, Ankara was founded by Midas, the king of Phrygia. It was the Phrygians, who gave the city name Ancyra, which means anchor. Click here for further historical details.
