43,657 Visited Ani in 2012
A Hurriyet news article says that 43,657 visitors travelled to the ancient Armenian city of Ani, almost double the 23,400 that visited in 2011.
Kars Culture and Tourism Manager Hakan Doganay said there were a total of 21 main cultural treasures in Ani. "In fact, we call Ani an iceberg because we know there is a lot to discover and excavate at Ani," he said.
Doganay added that if excavations are completed at the site, it could become one of Turkey's top tourism sites.
