“Arkeopark Roman Theater work, Ankara Castle restoration work and Ulus Historical City Center renovation work are all works we have carried out to prepare our Ankara for the 100th anniversary of the Republic. We have implemented most of them. We aim to make these works visible both by the Turkish people, especially by the people of Ankara, and by guests from abroad.”
