For tourists there is not much things to see in Ankara. First of all, I advice to see castle area. The oldest parts of the city surround the Castle. The Alaaddin Mosque found inside its walls is still one of the best examples of Selcuk art and wood craftsmanship, in spite of the fact that it was restored by the Ottomans. The area old Turkish houses, several art galleries and fine restaurants for traditional Turkish cuisine.
The Museum of Anatolian Civilizations is close the castle door It contains priceless artifacts belonging to the Paleolithic and Neolithic eras as well as the Hatti, Hittite, Phrygian, Urartu and Roman civilizations.
I also advice to see Anitkabir museum. The mouselum of our biggesst leader Atatürk. You may see many thing about our history too...
Also you may see all Ankara from Atakule tower.
You may visit first and second national parliment building at Ulus. (We call as a "eski meclis")
Ethnographical museum is worth to see too. It is close to Ulus.
Between them you may rest at "Genclik parki".
For feeling city life you must walk around the Kizilay centre. But histhorical things are around the old center Ulus. At night you may walk at Konur sokak, you may drink beer at Sakarya street etc. (At Kizilay)
There are some Ankara views here:
Ankara at night:

This area has many old houses and Karacabey Turkish bath. There are nice small places for eating something. It is just... more travel advice
