Karayannidis House, built during the fin de sciele



Interior













Capital of the Greek Pontus region,Trapezountas (Trabzon) as it was known until 1922, had a flourishing Greek population.

Originally founded as Trapezus by Greek traders from Miletus (traditionally in 756 BC), the city was one of a number (about ten) of Milesian emporia, or trading colonies along the shores of the Black Sea. Others include Sinope, Abydos and Cyzicus (in the Dardanelles). Like most Greek colonies, the city was a small enclave of Greek life, and not an empire unto its own, in the later European sense of the word. When Xenophon and the "ten thousand" Greek mercenaries fighting their way out of Persia reached Trapezus, it was the first Greek city they had reached (Xenophon, Anabasis, 5.5.10).

During the nineteenth century Greeks built many distinguished buildings in Trapezountas, including the progressive Frontestirion School. Unfortunately, due to geo-political reasons the area was ethnically cleansed of its majority Greek population in the 1920's, many of whom left for modern Greece, other areas surrounding the Black Sea or beyond.

In this pic you can decipher the Greek letters on the building of the Frontestirieon

Hmm, I can't quite figure out where the problem started, but here's what I know.
Trabzon is a city in Turkey, but with a Greek past (as almost all cities in the area). To claim that it isn't Turk or isn't Greek makes no sense to me.

The problem is it should be opened with its current name and mentioned about its past within the thread...Everybody who opens this thread will think the name of this building is like the one written in the title..It is known as "Ataturk House of Trabzon" for years....People should open threads with their current names not the names given years ago!!!People are informed very wrongly here..

So is this name Karyandis still used or not?
Because we don't open threads about Constantinople anymore, it's all about Istanbul, so we might have to use its current name, or at least use "former" in the title.
On the other hand, the guy did mention its current name in the post, but I do think he should have put it in the title too

Ah I see what you are saying now. So how about in the title:

Karayannidis/Ataturk House, Trabzon


So that way all are happy and the whiners can go away so we can leave the topic be.

^I wish, but I first want the creator of the thread make his opinion known, if he agrees, all is good and he will know what the problem was.
If he doesn't, I'll change the title myself
The thread isn't that important, since even the opening post is a simple picture, although we got many others in the later post. But I didn't want to close a thread related to architecture, so I just deleted the useless posts instead.

This thread has been heavily censored. I think users have over reacted.

The building today is the Ataturk Museum, but was originally the Karayannidis house.

Isn't this Ataturk Kiosk of Trabzon?
I've been there twice, stunning edifice indeed. It worths a visit absolutely!

Trabzon is my mom's hometown hence I've been there several times. I've been to Ataturk Kiosk also twice, years ago. I don't remind if I've taken photos.. Anyway here under this thread there are many and far better than what I could have done.

Trabzon is a marvellous city, all with its surroundings, history, nature, food and its people. Kackar Mountains are must be seen and you will be surprised how green can be nature and will find out new tones of blue and especially green.
