Kucuksu Summer Palace-Istanbul

Located in Anatolian part of Istanbul.Kucuksu Summer Palace was constructed under the supervision of Grand Vizier Divitdar Emin Mehmet Pasa for Sultan Mahmut I. The Palace, made entirely out of timber, was renovated by Mustafa III, Selim III and Mahmut II. This wooden palace was torn down by Abdulmecid to be replaced by a stone version in 1856. The Palace was designed by Nigagos Balyan in European architectural style. Extensive restoration of the palace took place in the era of Abdulaziz. The last imperial visitors of the palace were Mehmet V Resat and Caliph Abdulmecid. After the establihment of the Turkish Republic, president Mustafa Kemal Ataturk occasionally visited the palace. In 1983, the palace was opened to the public as a museum.
