    The InterNations expat community in Ankara is truly international: Next to fellow Austrians I've made good contacts and friends from all over the world.

Welcome to the InterNations Expat Community Here in Ankara!

Merhaba and a warm welcome to our community of expats in Turkey's vibrant capital, Ankara. Specifically created to support expats, your InterNations account opens the doors to this bustling city, with a wealth of advice and insider tips. You'll find answers to your questions such as "what education options are available?" and "how do I apply for a work permit?". Take any other concerns to our forum, where our friendly expats already living in Ankara are happy to share their essential first-hand experience. Ask anything from locations of the best sports facilities to navigating those tricky paperwork issues, and build on their knowledge as you follow in their footsteps to join the expat population of Ankara.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Khobar (Eastern Prov.) or Beijing.

Museums, Parks and Wine to the Economy of Ankara

Find culture in the city and learn about the region of Anatolia with the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations and the War of Independence Museum. Catch a glimpse into traditional Ankara in the Hamamonu district and find chic bars, cafes and restaurants at Arjantin Street and Filistin Street in the Kavaklidere area of the city. For nature lovers and active expats, explore the parks of the city for rowing, ice-skating, hiking and to catch a glimpse of the famous swans gifted by the Chinese government at Kugulu Park. Concert halls, the Opera house and the various smaller venues keep music alive in Ankara in addition to the annual International Ankara Music Festival. As the administrative center of Turkey, government workers make up a significant amount of Ankara's workforce. Administration and services are major sectors, and expats can find employment at the many foreign embassies present in the capital. There are also strong aerospace, defense and automotive production industries, with exports steadily increasing in recent years. Of course, in a city with 4.5 million inhabitants, hospitality, retail, education and healthcare are also important sources of employment, and exports include wine, wool, honey and pears specific to the region.

    Fellow expats in Ankara helped us to find an English-speaking nanny for our 2-year old daughter. We are very happy with her!
