If you are a Turk, you have visit that house. If you are a human who believe in freedom and democracy, you have to visit that house. A place full of history and memory of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk who is founder of Turkish Republic.

Recently renovated Ataturk's birthplace is now a free museum explaining his life in Thessaloniki and forming of Turkish State. It is part of Turkish embassy -but you enter round the back through a garden.
