  • The charm of a historic location holds many untold stories. Start the day with a relaxing walk around the streets of Ankara, absorbing the culture and history around you. Then, head to a traditional historical café for enriching intellectual discussions over a rewarding cup of Turkish coffee. Keep the conversation flowing as you uncover the mysteries of a bygone era seeped in the spaces of the café.
  • While you're there, dig deeper into the rich history of Ankara by asking the café owner or locals for exciting stories or legends that have shaped these locations. Get involved in a culture quiz or trivia about the country’s historical events and architecture.
  • In the latter part of the date, take the discussion towards your favorite authors, philosophers, or thinkers since the café’s ambiance is perfect for deep topics. Also, consider discussing Turkish film, literature, or music, to blend your discussions into the setting.

Preparation steps:

  • Before heading out for your date, do some research about Ankara’s history and culture. Familiarize yourself with significant events or personalities that left a mark on Turkish history. This will allow you to steer the conversation in interesting directions.
  • While it's likely that the historical café you'll be visiting may have a guide or dedicated personnel to assist customers, you can enhance your experience by learning a bit of Turkish; phrases like Merhaba for Hello, or Nasılsınız? for How are you?
  • Lastly, prepare some thought-provoking questions or subjects that you can introduce during your discussion. Think of topics that both you and your partner find interesting to keep the conversation engaging.

Some tips:

  • Turkey’s currency is the Turkish Lira, ensure you have change to cover your date. Paying in cash is often preferred at older establishments.
  • Being respectful is essential in a city as culturally rich as Ankara. Show interest in local stories, customs, and the café's history—this not only enhances your experience, but also builds a connection with the locals.
  • Despite the cooler temperatures in November, Ankara's weather is still pleasant for an outdoor walk. But, remember to dress warmly and consider the weather forecast. If it looks like it might rain, perhaps carry Compact Umbrellas to protect yourselves.
