"Also you may visit the best..." Ankara Favorite Tip by Dirim

Ankara General: 32 reviews and 22 photos


Favorite thing: Also you may visit the best university of Tukey: MIDDLE EAST TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY. It is 8 km from the city centre. But takes only 20 minutes by minibus ('Dolmus' we say)

It was founded in 1956 and has the biggest campus in Turkey. It was founded by US aid, paradoxically in 1970's US ambassador Commer's automobile was set into fire in the campus by anti-imperialist students, suspecting him as a CIA agent in Vietnam.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
