Ataturk has stayed once for 3 days in this place,there are different rooms labeled as meeting room, library, ...
The palace has a beautiful garden with different color tulips . Nice place but not a must go.
I was stuck in Trabzon for a couple days in January because my flight to Istanbul was redirected there due to the snow storm that was battering Istanbul's airport. Deciding to make the most of the fact that we could not continue our journey back to Uzbekistan, I with my mum and another passenger decided to visit some places in Trabzon. This was one of the few we visited and while I wouldn't say it was extremely exciting, there wasn't anything that made me say wow, it was quite a nice house, with old carpets, and tiles.
Ataturk`s maansion in on the road to Soguksu from the old city and take about 20 minutesdriving by car or taxi from Trabzon Airport. This mansion was actually consturcted at late 19th century for a whealty greek family. After the independence war all greek minorities were deported to Greece and mansion was left unused for some time and later in early 1930 was bought by local municipality and offerede as a gift to founder of Tuurkey, Mr. Keal Ataturk as a residance place while his visits to Trabzon. The mension is on a hill overlooking to Black Sea and well kept and remediated by local grater municipality. The mansion do not offers parking place so it could be sort of difficult to find a place around and the last time I visited, I had to park half a km away. An neterence fee of 5Tl, aboyt 1.3EURs should be paid it is better to have some local currenncy ready for the tickets.
