  Ankara - Cappadocia - HITTITE MUSEUM (Anatolian Civilisation Museum - Ankara)
The first museum in Ankara was established by Mubarek Galip Bey, Directorate of Culture, in 1921, in the section of the Castle of Ankara called Akkale. In addition to this museum, artifacts from the Augustus Temple and the Byzantine Baths were also collected. Upon recommendation of Atatürk and from the view of establishing an "Eti Museum" in the center , the Hittite artefacts from the region were sent to Ankara and therefore a larger museum was needed. The Director of Culture at that time, Hamiz Zübeyr Koþay and Saffet Arýkan, Minister of Education recommended that the Mahmut Paþa Bazaar and the Inn be repaired and converted into a museum. This recommendation was accepted and restoration continued from 1938 to 1968. Upon the completion of repairs of the bazaar, where the domed structure is, in 1940, a committee chaired by German Archaeologist H. G. Guterbock arranged the museum. In 1943, while the repairs of the building were still under progress, the middle section was opened for visitors. Repair projects of this part were carried out by Architect Macit Kural and repair work upon tender was performed by Architect Zuhtu Bey. In 1948 the museum administration left Akkale as a storage house, and the museum was in four rooms of Kursunlu Han the repairs of which were completed. Restoration and exhibition projects of the part around the domed structure were prepared and applied by Architect Ýhsan Kýygý. Five shops were left in their original form, and the walls between the shops were destroyed and thus a large location was provided for exhibition. The museum building reached its present structure in 1968. Kurþunlu Han, which has been used as an administration building, has research rooms, a library, a conference hall, a laboratory and workshops, and the Mahmut Pasha Vaulted Bazaar has been used as the exhibition hall. This museum was the number 1 place to see in Ankara. Included in with its priceless collection of Paleolithic, Neolithic, Hatti, Hittite, Phrygian, Urartian, Persian, Greek and Roman artifacts, and the showpiece Lydian Treasure.

Cher Toroshan, J'ai enfin des nouvelles des clients. Tout c'est très très bien passé lors de la croisière. Transferts parfait - respect des consignes. Le capitaine leur a suggérer de changer d'itinéraire; les clients ont changé et ils été très satisfait de la suggestion. Ils n'ont pu se rendre à Kalymnos car la mer était trop forte et le capitaine n'a pas voulu prendre de risque. Bonne nourriture - bon rapport avec les membres d'équipage. Je te remercie pour cette collaboration très fructueuse.
