Palace in Istanbul, Turkey
Located on the site of what was once a wooden palace built by Mahmud I in 1751, the two storey marble-covered Küçüksu Palace was constructed by Nigoğos Balyan for Abdülmecid in 1856. On both floors, the four rooms on the corners open to the hall in the middle. The lively Baroque decorations of the Palace, the luxurious interior with fireplaces made of valuable Italian Stones, mirrors and chandeliers, fine parquet floors, and grand furniture, are unique. The room on the upper floor that looks out on the sea was used by Atatürk from time to time. The palace was restored in 1980 and turned into a museum in 1983.
