Ankara Palas or formerly Ankara Vakıf Hotel, was a social facility for Turkey’s parliament in Ankara and has served as a guest house for official guests in the first years of Turkey. The Hotel witnessed many important events of Turkish political life. It is a historical building that is still used as a State Guest House today. It is known that some innovations brought to Turkish society life with Atatürk’s revolutions were first initiated in Ankara Palas. It hosted social events organized to encourage women to enter social life under equal conditions with men. The most famous of the events held in the Ankara Palas in the first years of the Republic is the “Republic Balls”. It has been a great pleasure for us to document this heritage that has witnessed history.
