Istanbul Naval Museum Ataturk's Caiques
A display of three rowboats (caiques) used for recreation by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the first President of Turkey (1923-1938), with pictures of him using the boats on the wall in the background. The Istanbul Navy Museum dates back over a century but is now housed in a new purpose-built building on the banks of the Bosphorus. While ostensibly relating to Turkish naval history, the core of its collection consists of 14 imperial caiques, mostly from the 19th century, that are displayed on the main two floors of the museum.
