Northern shore of the Sea of Marmara, Tekirdag is an important commercial harbor. From both sides of this modern city of lovely promenades stretch beautiful sandy beaches. A happy mixture of sunflower fields and vineyards cover the surrounding area. The most important architectural monument is the Sinan-designed Rustem Pasa Mosque, built by Suleyman the Magnificent's Grand Vizier in 1554. The Archaeology and Ethnography Museum displays an extensive collection of artifacts from the area. The Rakoczy Museum occupies the house where the Hungarian prince, Rakoczy Ferench 11 (1676-1735), who fought for his people's liberation, lived out the last years of his life. The Namik Kemal Memorial (1840-1888) honors the birthplace of the Turkish National Poet. Sixty kilometers west of Tekirdag, the holiday center of Sarkoy and Murefte is a renowned wine tasting region; beautiful vineyards cover the entire area, and the city hosts a wine festival every year.
