Build by the wealthy greek banker Karayannidis as his house and served him and his family till the 1917. After that with the new Turcs movement it was confiscated (nationalised) and Mustafa Kemal stayed there for some days (around two days). Very nice exterior and garden. Very interesting for people who like "tinny" beuty and relaxed atmosphere.

I was expecting something a bit grander, but unless you're a big architecture or Ataturk fan, it's pretty much just a dusty old house. The Trabzon Museum house is much more interesting, beautiful, in the city center and Ataturk stayed there too. I would pass this one up and go to Trabzon Museum instead.

If you're really not big fan of Ataturk, don't waste your time going there. Nothing so special about it except how the house looks like from outside.

Its also called the Ataturk House/Museum. A little difficult to get here - although yu can get a dolmus to take you very close and then walk up (when returning you can get a ticket at the museum itself and a bus comes along every 15-20 minutes). The Ataturk House holds a high position among the tourist attractions in Trabzon... More

If you are an admirer of Ataturk like I am please do not miss this museum when you visit Trabzon. The setting is a bit on the outskirts of the city and the forested neighbourhood is a break from the busy city. The museum has wonderful Ataturk memorabilia and it is kept in good condition. The garden surrounding the villa... More

If you have liked the building in which Trabzon museum is housed, don't miss to visit the Ataturk Kosku! Not that much for the exhibits (unless you are an Ataturk fan), but for the chance to admire another example of well preserved early 20th century Black Sea villa located in a well maintained garden about 6,5 km south of the...

Elegant building in nicely groomed garden with period furniture. Could get very crowded. Looked like it got public transportation. Poor service in the lovely garden cafe try the one across from the museum a little bit better but do not expect much.

Attaturk has many places of residence around Turkey, but this one is well maintained and compact, if you can spare the time not to be missed.
