“Well designed statue”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

- that took my fancy. It is on a street that features small statues of children, going on for around 3 miles, and these are delightful. Also the views of sea and mountains beyond the Monument are breathtaking.

“Ataturk Monument and museum is very impressive.”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

Aside from the very grand approach to the museum from the monument, the collections to view at this museum is very impressive...from Ataturk's vehicles to his boat to knives, uniforms, clothing. The explanations are well done and the gorgeous tilework from floor to walls to ceilings is spectacular. The view over the city is lovely as are the gardens, particularly the symbol of Turkey in roses.

“Don´t change your route to see it.”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

Ataturk is till today the greatest hero of that amazing country and people, but that not means that every corner should have a staue of him. That one, specifically, is a beautiful monument and I respect the fact that it is valuable for the locals, but it should not be considered such a touristic attraction.
