Museum
“Inside the museum are objects which evoke stories and memories of the Istanbul of the 1970s. Some objects, such as Füsun’s dress or driver’s license or the view from her room, are taken directly from the novel. Objects are displayed in cases corresponding to chapters in the novel. On the ground floor of the museum is a large spiral, representing the Aristotelian conception of time as the line which links the series of unbreakable, atomic moments of the “present,”—the concept from which objects of the museum link the moments of the novel to the characters living out its arc.”

“If you are into wine, you have to visit this Winery. They produce their own wines using grapes from the Manisa region of Turkey. The soil on which they farm their grapes is volcanic, resulting in their wines to have an earthy and deep taste. Shiraz is especially a great choice for such a characteristic in my opinion. ”

“Baylan is famous for its 'Kup Griye' but any desert you choose will be, no doubt, tasty! There is also another Baylan in Bebek, neighborhood. However this is the original place. Interior is historic. Therefore I would recommend you to visit Baylan in Kadıköy (Anatolian side)”
