Ankara Train Station

Ankara Railway Station is an important center with not only being a spot of intercity transfer but also with its enlightening Ankara's history. As soon as you set foot the walls of his stone building whisper to your ear that the operation plans of Independence War had been prepared there.

The four museums of the station take you through a journey on Turkish railway history beginning from September 23, 1856, the establishment date of railways, to the fast trains of 2000s.

The three story stone building, built for station services during the Baghdad railway construction, has been assigned to Atatürk when he arrived Ankara on December 27, 1919. Between 1920-1922 the operation plans of independence War has been prepared, many agreements and signature ceremonies were held in this building. Above all the decision of forming Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi (National Assembly) was also taken in this historical building.

The ground floor is now a museum. The coach Atatürk used to travel through the country is being exhibited next to the museum. The other museum of this station is TCDD (Turkish State Railways) Museum. The most interesting part of the station is the steam locomotives approaching from the history!!!

Recently famous Turkish jazz performers give concerts at this historical station on October 29 (Republic Day). We strongly recommend you to attend those concerts. Although crowded, you can spend cheerful time. Besides you can have warm wine and sandwiches from the stands of the cafes set for this occasion.

If you have images about Turkey such as “Midnight Express” we recommend you to visit Ankara Railway Station. You'll have the chance to see all “expresses” traveling to different corners. You can watch Turkish people while sipping a cup of Turkish coffee in the historical restaurant of the station.

Traveling by rail is quite pleasing for those who have no hurry. Especially when you are dining in the restaurant or sipping a glass of wine the nonstop changing panorama, swiftly flowing rails, roads running parallel to railway will sure make the journey a pleasure.

Caution: The most important point you should take into consideration when traveling by rail is never and never accepting beverage or food from people you don't know. Lately, although rare, robberies by mixing barbiturate to food and beverage are common. Therefore it's better to be careful!!! Also as in all over the world take your valuables with you when leaving your seat or compartment.

From time to time TCDD arranges tours in Turkey with seam train. For further information on these tours just call (312) 309 05 15 and 311 06 20.
