Ankara is the capital of Turkey and bagels. Part 9

Those who find it difficult to sleep while sitting, night buses are contraindicated. I refer to just this type of people. Having tried all sorts of poses, I met the city of Ankara with my eyes stuck together. Out of Cappadocia we reached Ankara very quickly.

Therefore, we decided to have a good sleep.the next night on the road, and the best option for this is the train. And straight from the bus station we went to the railway station to find out how we can get to Adapazari (this is on the road to Istanbul), and from where we can get to our friends on the Black Sea.

We went to the railway station by metro. A handy thing I must say, quickly to any part of the city, well, to the one in which it is, since there are only a few branches. The cost of the trip, something about 30 rubles per trip, transfers from branch to branch are free. There, by the way, categorically you can not take pictures. As soon as I got the camera, the peace officers ran up to me, or there was a persistent Turkish speech in the loudspeakers.

In the subway we met a Turk student,know English. How nice to meet a person who speaks a familiar familiar speech. He came up, he volunteered to hold us on the subway. Pleasant people, however, the Turks.

At the railway station of the city of Ankara, as it turned out no oneNormally does not speak English. Even the aunt, who was sitting next to the big inscription "Information". After tormenting for half an hour, we found out which trains are available, and bought seats in a sleeper (similar to our coupe).

And then went for a walk around Ankara, the capitalTurkey, after all. The truth is not historical, but because Ataturk said so, they say, is conveniently located. Therefore, this city is unattractive for viewing, ordinary buildings, similar to each other, as in a scoop, only neat and a little European. In general, Ankara was not particularly impressed.

Also the city of Ankara and the capital of round bagels. They are here at every turn. 3 pieces for 1 lira (20p), and in the evening and 5-7 pieces for 1 lira. Morning tasty, and the evening burned.

First we looked at the Kocatepe Mosque, and evenwent inside. The grandeur of the building is impressive - the ceilings are tall, red carpets are wide, chandeliers are awesome. Cool and barefoot on the carpet is nice. There were few people, they fell into the gap between the prayers.

Further visited Ataturk mausoleum. It will be more awesome than Lenin's mausoleum - large buildings, guards, several museums dedicated to the leader, and a cinema hall with continuous broadcast of films. One strange thing seemed, a large park area around the mausoleum, closed to the public. And why is she asked, for whom?

Before the train, they managed to run back to the old cityAnkara, the center of which is located on a mountain inside the fortress. Here there really is a coloring - old houses, narrow streets. The feeling that it is not in the capital of Turkey, but in a god-forgotten village. Only the children there turned out to be slightly angry - they were trying to blow a ball at me, maybe the face did not come out?

In Turkey, they prefer to go in blackclassic shoes, so at every corner you can find shoemakers. For me, as a person who prefers shoes of a completely different style, it was odd to see. Archaism, straight.

As in other Asian countries, people like to have a day just to sit and talk about this and that, instead of working.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
