Home of Kemal Ataturk
In 1935 the Thessaloniki City Council donated to the Turkish state the house where Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the modern Turkish republic, was born. Now converted into a museum, the building has two floors. The house itself, which dates from before 1870, has three stories and a courtyard. The first floor has a drawing room for guests, the room used by Kemal’s mother, the living room and kitchen. On the second floor is the room where Ataturk was born in 1881. Another room has a display of personal items belonging to the ‘father of the modern Turks’, and a display of documents from his schooldays can be seen on the wall.
