Turkey – Hittite Museum (Ankara)1 Comment June 28, 2010 / Posted in Travel
After staying overnight at Sheraton Ankara, I decided to end my Turkey trip by visiting the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations (Hittite Museum), established in 1921 and after a renovation, it was opened to the public as Ankara archeological museum in 1968.
As the name suggested, it hosts the archeological artifacts for the Anatolian Civilisations. In 1997, it was named the European Museum of the Year. Without going through details, the museum exhibits a range of artifacts from the period of – Paleolithic, Neolithic, chalcolithic age, early bronze age then continues on to Assyrian trade colonies, hittite, phyrgian, late hittite, urartian, lydian, classical period through the ages.
Driving back to Istanbul, I looked back at my trip, I really like Turkey and I believe it is the the best country in Europe to visit..
Good Bye Ankara, as I drove back to Istanbul.
