of the Republic of Turkey (Turkey). It is located in Ankara and was designed by architects Professor Emin Onat (Emin Halid Onat) and Assistant Professor Ahmet Orhan Arda, whose proposal beat 48 other entries from several countries in a competition held by the Turkish Government in 1941 for a "monumental mausoleum" for Atatürk. After graduating from the Ankara Science High School (Ankara Fen Lisesi), he started his university education at the Middle East Technical

and excursion spot for both Turkish and foreign travellers thanks to the natural beauty of its surroundings, which are covered with dense forests, and easy access by car (it is served by a 21 km road leaving from the İstanbul-Ankara E 80 highway at the level of Mount Bolu, three hours' drive from these two largest cities of Turkey). Lake Abant is a natural park. '''Science High School''' ( ; after the founding

of other science high schools in Turkey also referred as '''Ankara Science High School''' Ankara Fen Lisesi - AFL ) is a public boarding high school in Ankara, Turkey with a curriculum concentrated on natural sciences and mathematics. It was established in 1964 as the first science high school in Turkey with a funding from the Ford Foundation. The school is modeled after the American counterparts like the Bronx High School of Science. Due to the considerable success of its alumni in all aspects of professional life and academia, science high school concept is spread around the country and now there are public and private science high schools in all major cities. Its alumni includes many scientists (like Tekin Dereli), top managers (like Süreyya Ciliv and Onat Menzilcioglu) engineers and doctors (like İzge Günal) as well as famed musicians (like Derya Köroğlu and Ahmet Kanneci). As Didim is so well-situated in the 1980s people from large cities around Turkey, especially Ankara, began to buy holiday homes, apartments, and villas in the area. Most of these were built as cooperative housing projects with private beaches. The attraction of the area is proved by the number of Ankara families that have now been going to Didim for two or more generations, and even today you will see many cars with Ankara (06) numberplates in Didim in summertime. Property values are now rising dramatically and the building boom continues as foreign buyers, especially the families of Turks living and working in Europe, follow their lead. The growth of Didim in the 1980s was enhanced with the building of hotels to accommodate visitors, originally from Britain but now from Turkey itself, on cheap package holidays. Since about 2001 British people have begun to buy holiday homes in Didim, establishing themselves as a visible community of many thousands, to the extent that utility bills in the district are now printed in English as well as Turkish. Elsewhere Weekend Guardian Unlimited You will see the Union Jack and other British flags all around Didim, especially in the bars. A Greek reconnaissance force under General Anastasios Papoulas began to move from their base in Bursa in the direction of Eskişehir in early January 1921. The battle began with a Greek assault on the positions of Miralay (Colonel) İsmet Bey (İsmet İnönü)'s troops near the railway station of İnönü on January 9, 1921 and fighting continued until dark. On January 10, Greek Islands division began moving along the Kovalca-Akpınar line, and İzmir division was moving on Yeniköy-Teke-Hayriye direction and additional forces were moving on Söğüt-Gündüzbey line. Additionally Çerkes Ethem turned against the new central government (Grand National Assembly of Turkey#History) in Ankara, refusing to join his forces with the regular army established under the command of İsmet İnönü. Newly reconstituted Turkish army had to put down his rebellion while also fighting the Greek (Greeks)s. ''History of the Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey'', Stanford J.

Veysel said he himself would like to go and visit the nation's leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, and set out for Ankara on foot with his faithful friend İbrahim. These two pure hearts who started their travel on bare foot under tough winter conditions, arrived in Ankara after having trampled down the roads for three months. Veysel was hosted by his hospitable friends for forty five days in Ankara. Although his aim in traveling to Ankara was to present the letter to Atatürk, it was not possible for him to do so. His mother Gülizar says "He felt bitter regret for two things in life: first not having been able to visit the great leader, and second, not being able to join the army...". However, his tale was printed in a printing house named ''Hakimiyeti Milliye'' in Ulus (Ulus, Ankara), and was published in the newspaper for three days. Then, he started to travel around the country and to play and sing everywhere he went to. He was loved, he was respected.

Kâzım Karabekir Pasha moved to Ankara in October 1922, and continued to serve in the parliament as Deputy of Edirne.

Southern Dobruja, home to two-thirds of Bulgaria’s Tatar population, was annexed to Romania. The Tatars found themselves in a state with large Tatar populations around Medgidia, Mangalia and Köstence (Constanţa). On the other hand, the start of this period coincided with a short-lived Tatar nation-state in the Crimea and the constitution of the Turkish secular state. Modern Tatar nationalism embraced Pan-Turkism arid turned to Ankara for support as a result of Kemalist propaganda. This period saw large-scale Tatar emigration to Turkey and the establishment of a circle around the magazine "Emel (Emel (Turkish magazine))" (1929-1930 in Dobrich), which used Pan-Turkic slogans as a cover for the promulgation of Turkish policies. Arguably, this was the beginning of the political Turkification of Tatars (Antonov, 1995). In 2005 the band made an appearance on the main stage of the ‘Rock Istanbul Festival’.

The band also appeared as musical guest at various University and High School Festivals (German High School, Ereğli Anatolian High School) all over Turkey. He was born on the 8 February 1980 in Adana. He started his music career in the early days of his youth when he bought his first guitar during high school. He continued his music life by participating at the Milliyet’s Music contest and from where he won the first prize in Turkey for songwriting on 3 songs. Later on he moved to Ankara to continue his studies at the University of Ankara at the department of Spanish language. As he realised that music is the most important thing in his life, he quit the university and moved to Istanbul to become a professional musician. Bilge managed to get a lot of attention with his different music and singing style. During his stay in Istanbul he met with Özgür Peştimalci and they formed the band "Direc-t". "Anything I've done", one of his songs sung with Gülce Duru, has been selected as 2005 a VH1-song of the year December finalist.He has sung on Doga icin cal project a Turkish version of Playing for a change.Also he has made "Arabesque Strings" a Turkish music library album for Muzikotek with Yigit Vural. death_date Commons:Ankara Wikipedia:Ankara Dmoz:Regional Middle East Turkey Provinces Ankara
