Ankara the capital of AtatürkOctober 29 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C
After the end of the Ottoman empire and several "liberation wars" it was general Mustafa Kemal Pascha who founded in 29.10.1923 the Republic of Turkey. He became the first president, later to be nicknamed "Atatürk" (which means "father of the Turks"). Separating religion from the state (unlike Turkish politics nowadays :S), he is considered the founder of modern Turkey and is still a kind of Superstar. You find his portrait and name everywhere, especially when you by chance visit the capital on the country's foundation day and thousands of Turkish people come to worship the tomb of its idol.
