  • Hattusas, the ruins of a Hittite city dating from about 2000 B.C. to 1000 B.C. At one time it must have been a great and impressive city but today little remains except for the reconstructed foundations. However, the plan of the city is still evident and walking around the ruins makes an interesting and instructive day.
  • Bogazkale Museum A few objects from the Hattusas (most are in Ankara) and lots of photographs of the excavations.
  • Yazilkaya An excavation site containing Hittite buildings. The foundations of large religious buildings from that period are still visible.
