  • Florya, a residential area on the Sea of Marmara, between Yeşilköy and Kucukcekce, was a 19th-century town. It is known to be a faint hunter's haunt in the 19th century. Florya, which gained importance with Atatürk's interest in this place, gradually became a summer recreation center. The mansion, which was designed for Atatürk by the Istanbul Municipality in 1935 for architect Seyfi Arkan, was built as a summer residence and opened for use on August 14 of the same year. The Great Leader lived here for a long time in June and July 1936, especially using the mansion for political and scientific meetings, among them King Henry VIII of England. He hosted some important guests, including Edward and Madame Simpson. The mansion was last used by Atatürk on May 28, 1938, and after his death, these buildings were used by Mr. Ismet Inonu, Mr. Celal Bayar, Mr. Cemal Gursel, Mr. Cevdet Sunay, Mr. Fahri Korutürk and Mr. Kenan as President of the Republic of Turkey. It was used by the universe. On September 16, 1988, the national palaces department of the Turkish Parliament was transferred to the Department of National Palaces, which was restored and turned into an Ataturk Museum and a continuous photography exhibition on "Atatürk in Istanbul" Created. On the other hand, various publications about Atatürk are introduced and sold in a part of the mansion. The buildings of the Aide and the Secretariat General were repaired and turned into social facilities of the Turkish Parliament, and a building providing cafeteria and restaurant service was added to the space between these buildings, and the garden was also the garden; cafeteria services have been put in a position to be provided.

  • It was really peaceful to be in one of Atatürk's favorite places. Especially from the old photographs, the memories of the present were literally coming into consideration... A modest mansion built with small rooms like a ship and the logic of a cabin. It gives you a wonderful experience full of memories...
