Admire the Georgian and Seljuk-influenced architecture. Marvel at the stunning stone frieze depicting the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, as well as the churches frescoes. Visit the Atatürk Mansion, the stately mansion that was once owned by the founder of the Republic of Turkey Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Explore the mansion’s gardens and enjoy its fine views. See the map of the WWI Dardanelles campaign which has been scratched into the table in the study.
