  Yozgat

217 kms from Ankara is Yozgat, whose history extends as far back as the Hittite period. It was an important residential area in those times, and Alisar, one of the main Hittite cities, lies inside the borders of this province. Bogazkoy and Alacahoyuk, though not being part of Yozgat, are near enough to reflect the central position of the site with the notable ruins found in the district.

Today's city of Yozgat, on the other hand, is rather new, founded in the 18th century by the Ottomans. Capanoglu Ahmet Pasa, who was the "Bey" of the Turkmens at that time was the founder; and the Capanoglu Mosque which carries his name, stands as a remnant of this period along with the Suleyman Bey Mosque.

Constructed in the 19th century, the Nizamoglu Mansion is a prominent building, displaying a fine Turkish architectural style. It is an important house of the Ottoman period and is now used to exhibit ethnographical treasures.

Near Yozgat, "Camlik" is an islet of forests. This site is a national park, 5 km south of the city, adorning the land with its beautiful scenery.
