Ulucanlar is a former state prison in Ankara. It was open in 2011 and it's first of its kind in the country. An interesting visit for those who like history and politics. The signs are in Turkish, but you can get a brochure in English which explains a little bit more about the place.

If you are a fan of visiting prisons, then you might enjoy taking this tour. This prison was built in 1925 and was used until the 1960's. Many political activists were kept (and tortured) in this prison. There is still graffiti that you can see on the walls and original artifacts throughout. The only drawback is that all the signage is in Turkish, so make sure to pick up an English brochure so that you know what you are looking at.
