The city is located on the territory that in the past belonged to different empires. The architecture partly recalls the times of Byzantine and Roman rule. Ankara is inferior to Istanbul in terms of population, but every year it catches up with the former Ottoman capital in terms of culture and tourist opportunities.
Ankara received its current status only in the 20s of the last century. At the same time, it began to grow and change. Some areas, such as Hamamonu, have been completely rebuilt and modernized. Along with this, old mosques have been preserved, and caravanserais have been given over to museum collections. According to this principle, the building was also received by the Polytechnic Museum of Rahmi M. Kocha. New buildings are also appearing in Ankara. So the presidential palace was built in 2014, and the residence became one of the largest in the world.
