Many hours later, we reached Ankara, capital of Turkey. Turkey’s capital and second largest city, Ankara lies at the heart of Anatolia. It is the center of the Turkish Government, and an important commercial and industrial city.
After breakfast, depart for Ankara, capital of Turkey. Visit Ataturk Mausoleum, the final resting place of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who was regarded as the father of modern Turkey. Besides, the final resting place of İsmet İnönü, the second President of Turkey is on the the opposite side of the Ceremonial Ground. In the museum (inside Ataturk Mausoleum), there are Atatürk’s personal items, his wardrobe, and some of the gifts presented to him.

Thereafter, proceed to Bolu, Koru Hotel for your overnight stay.
An old hotel with small room and we could barely find space for our luggage. Besides, toilet is small and no air conditioner. However, this is mountain area and the air is cool and refreshing. There are turkish bath, sauna and fitness facilities but not available during my stay. To that end, the rating is poor.
