In the work we will do, which has not been done before, all the items in the space, from signboards, photographs, writing, furniture and curtains, will be overhauled. And we do this with a completely professional approach. A team from Ankara who do these things very well came to our city. We had long meetings. We're going to take these things very neatly and get them out of there. The deterioration of the furniture and various problems will be eliminated during this process, and when the restoration of the Mansion is completed, we will put the furniture back in its place.

WE AIM TO GIVE THE 100TH YEAR RECEPTION IN THE GARDEN OF THE KÖŞKÜN

Expressing that the Atatürk Mansion will make a name for itself more nationally and internationally after the restoration, President Zorluoğlu said, “Atatürk Mansion will be opened to the service of our people, both structurally and in terms of its furnishings, on the 100th anniversary of the foundation of our Republic. .

IT CAN'T EVEN ASK

Disinformation-oriented statements made from time to time on this subject also reveal the accuracy of our work. It is a source of pride for our city to have this work, in which Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the common value of our nation, was hosted 3 times, and our municipality and our people will continue to protect this invaluable heritage, as they have up until now.”
