Interesting to see this house even if Ataturk only stayed here on 2 occasions. The place is a few km. South of towncenter. Easiest to go by taxi all the way up high and have it wait or buy returntickets for the bus when you pay the entrance ticket. The building must have been luxoriuos when it was built s... More

A truly challenging place to get to...... take A Taxi!!!!!!!!!! But well worth the effort. A lovely spot in a beautiful forest setting. The house and gardens are quite interesting.... a great look at Trabzon life in the early 20th century. In spite of the Ataturk connection, the house is quite charming, well appointed and woth a visit for the... More

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...
