Bogazkale is situated approximately 95 miles (153 kilometers) east of Ankara, the national capital.
Bogazkale isn't the only spot in this popular region worth seeing; those with enough time can also set out to see the unique qualities of the surrounding countryside, towns and cities. Karaoglu, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south, and Corum, 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southwest of Bogazkale are worth a visit too.
Allowing time to practice a few key phrases in the local language often separates the enlightened travelers from the tourist hordes. "Benimle dans eder misiniz?" ("Would you like to dance with me?") is useful. And, learning "Nerelisin?", which translates to "Where are you from?", can be a good conservation starter.
Those spending time in Corum or in other towns and cities in Turkey on the 29th of October, can enjoy national Republic Day activities and celebrations.
As your time here draws to an end, spend your last liras on that last souvenir and say Hoşçakal to the interesting people you've met and the places you've come to love.
