Nice place to get a great photo and to learn Turkish history. The statue is situated at the seafront and is only a short distance from the shops, night clubs and boats.

A great statue of Atatürk to celebrate the birth of modern Turkey. There is a statue of him in most towns in Turkey but this one is quite large and worth a visit

As his is located close to all the major attractions why not take a look! It’s also worth reading up on Ataturk who is very loved in Turkey!
