You will find this statue of Ataturk in Republic Square (Cumhuriyet Meydani) right in the centre of Antalya. There are usually floral tributes in front of the monument. Ataturk was named Father of the Turks in 1934. From the square you have great views down to the marina. There's a tram stop here too.

Ataturk is very much revered in Turkey and there are many monuments in the country erected in his honour. This is a pretty good one in a very pretty spot right on the high sea front.

A lovely place to stop as you explore the city, buy some apple tea and rest, refresh and enjoy. Quite a bit of traffic as this is on a main route. We stopped on our epic walk to the museum ! Caught the tram back though !

If you find yourself in Ankara then you must visit even if museums are not your thing as the gardens surrounding the mausoleum is excellent. My hotel was not far away so I walked and this in itself was most enjoyable, about 20 minutes. The hall was not much by itself but the museum is definitely worth the visit. Allow... More
