If you are in Ankara and you need to relax for a day or even a couple of hours, you can go to Eymir Lake. You can find great food there. You can walk around the lake or rent a bike.

You can walk or ride a bicycle around the lake. From the top of the hill, the scene is beautiful. There are different restaurant and cafes front the lake.
