A 410 foot (125m) communications and observation tower, Atakule stands in the Cankaya district of central Ankara, and serves as the city's primary landmark. A glass elevator whisks visitors to the tower's observation area for spectacular views of the city.
The top of the tower boasts an open terrace and a revolving restaurant, Sevilla, which rotates a full 360-degrees each hour. Another restaurant (which does not rotate), Dome, is located above Sevilla and directly under the cupola.
Atakule garners its name from the Turkish word "ata" meaning family and "kule" meaning tower.
