The highlands of Anatolia are considered the heartland of the country. Similar to the steppes of the former Soviet Union, the region in itself varies in altitude from 600 - 1,200 metres west to east and averaging approximately 500 metres high.
The heart of the political life in modern Turkey itself and has been the central hub of many different and significant societies and civilisations through time.
Throughout all of Turkey's museum's, The Museum of Anatolian Civilisations is said to be among the best, with exhibitions from Anatolian dating from 50,000 BC and leading right up to the 2nd Century AD.
It is rumoured that around 1200 BC, the Phrygian people came to the Plateau from over Europe and established Gordion (their capital) near the city of Polatli. Alexander the Great was rumoured to have become ruler of Asia by virtue, when he was meant to have 'undone Gordion's knot with his blade'. The tomb of the king of the Phrygian, King Midas, the man who according to legend could turn everything he touched to gold (hence 'The Midas Touch') is said to be located near Gordion too.
