Trabzon 0032.jpg

I was informed about the history of the building as follows: "The mansion which is reorganised as the Trabzon Museum was built by the Greek banker Kostaki Teophylaktos between 1889-1913 as a large family accommodation. The names of the architects are unknown. However, the common belief is that the architects were Italian, and materials used in the building were imported from Italy ."

Hi,

I will be adding comments later, I have still comments to Erzurum, Artvin, Rize to do. This building is now the museum, and was owned by a rich family in the early 20th century. More information in a week or two.

Hi Mr. Osseman, I am wondering if it would be possible for you to write like a one or two word about the place or the building in the photos. e.g. is the building in this photo a hotel or a belediye or a museum? Thanks.
