Ardahan, Turkey

Ardahan, which was previously the town of the province of Kars, 101 kms northeast, is a new province of Turkey.

Standing on flatland, this little city is a lovely spot with beautiful natural surroundings, and it has been the home of many civilizations dating far back to antiquity.

It is possible to find reminders of Ardahan's past everywhere over the land, the most important monumental figure feature being the ancient fortress (Ardahan Kalesi), which carries the same name as this historical city.
