Some day, if you happen to be in Ankara, don’t forget to visit Altindag, the historical face of the capital. The place where the Republic of Turkey was founded, Altindag has recently come into the spotlight for being a center of tourism, as well as being the star on the stage of arts and culture. Of course, the contribution of Altindag Municipality is profound in this regard.
Veysel Tiryaki, the Mayor of Altindag, has made great efforts to restore Altindag to its old glamorous days during the past decade and transform the district into a center of arts and culture. Altindag Municipality restored the Ulucanlar Prison Museum as part of the preservation project which started with Hamamonu in 2008. The municipality then realized another significant project for Ankara: Altinkoy’s Outdoor Museum.
