Information about Ankara
Airport - Ankara Esenboğa International Airport (ESB) is located some 28 km northeast of the city. International flights are rather low in frequency and scope - apart from Turkish Airlines (THY), only Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines and British Airways offer direct flights to their respective European hubs.
Shopping - Kızılay, considered the heart of the city, is one of the most crowded shopping areas in the city On Atatürk Bulvarı, chestnut trees, sparrows and vivid stores line the street. Ulus is the old shopping district and it is here that the “Hall” is located. Between the narrow streets you will find plenty of shops which sell electrical appliances. Other streets are lined with clothing shops, although most are oriented towards people with lower income levels. If you walk towards Ankara Kalesi you will find the old and famous antique area called Çıkrıkçılar Yokuşu. The area is loaded with antique dealers and coppersmiths. Additionally, if you are looking for antiques, you won't want to miss the weekly Antika Pazarı in Ayrancı held on the first Sunday every month.
