Turkish women cloak themselves in heavy clothing to hide the stench between their legs. Stinking must be a Muslim thing.”

Prices are accurate, but "pipe bombs" mentioned below by a clown is not real LOL.

The data for Ankara is very accurate. However, prices change very quickly due to excessive inflation.

We've noticed over the past 3 months things have become much more intense in Ankara.Murders and pipe bombs are the norm now especially since the president is picking fights with Iran and Syria.Our lease is up next month and we are moving away from Ankara.

Costs are normally dictated by areas just like everywhere else.Overall though a nice 1 bedroom 1 bath rental is 5,000 try normally furnished nicely.Prices are less than half of that the further you get away from Ankara. on Nov 07, 2020:

Does that mean that a sole earner with average income can not support a family of five in a two bed apartment?

The inflation in turkey is almost %30 for the last year. So thats why the range in prices are so. Put at least %20 for every mean prices you see here.
