Bosporus trip 0223

view map

This is an occassional shot towards the east, on the Asian shore. A viewer informed me it is the Kuleli Military School, the academy from which Mustafa Kemal Atatürk graduated. Then another viewer informed me Atatürk graduated from Manastır Military High School. So I checked with Andrew Mango's biography, where I ran into another problem: he claims Atatürk graduated in 1898 from prep school in Salonica, then went to Manastır Military High School for two years, then left in 1898 to go to Harbiye. Something wrong with the dates, it seems. I will try to clear this up.

It is true that this is Kuleli Military High School, but Kustafa Kemal ATATURK didn't graduate from here. He graduated from Manastýr Military High School. Good shots by the way :)
