Roman Baths
To begin our tour we are just outside of the Roman Baths! Constructed in the third century AD, during Roman rule, these Roman Baths are considered to be the best well preserved Roman ruins in the city. Now of course known as Ankara, these baths used to live in once was Ancrya. They served as a vital place for socializing where the citizens could converse and engage with one another. 

Designed in a standard Roman style, there were many different rooms throughout the bath house. The three most important and well known are the caldarium (hot room), tepidarium (warm room), and frigidarium (cold room). All three rooms were a part of bathing rituals during ancient Roman rule. 

These Roman ruins have now been converted into an open air museum that showcases over 1,000 ancient artifacts all in regards to the Roman Baths. They are separated into three main groups, either Steeles, Inscriptions, or Architectural Fragments. This is a fantastic location to learn more about the influence the Roman rule had on today’s city of Ankara, Turkey.
