Natural History Museum, Cankaya, Ankara, Turkey
Having a long historical background as a city Ankara hosts many architectural and historical findings in its museums.
The city is crowned by the ruins of the old castle, which adds to the picturesqueness of the view, but only a few historic structures surrounding the old citadel have survived to our date. There are, however, many finely preserved remains of Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine architecture, the most remarkable being the Temple of Augustus and Rome (20 BC) which is also known as the Monumentum Ancyranum.
