  • Florya Ataturk Sea Pavilion located at the entrance of the person actually being polite and a summary of the qualifications of this place. Pension and a nice restaurant inside but you need to be a guest to eat. There's a nice beach, a park, but the beach upkeep. Order tickets to his Cabinet deserted and white painted iron rust flaking paint, iron face. Despite this, the unique atmosphere and architecture made it into the sea, thanks to the mix of blue and white to create a pleasant weather. There are also officials, even the ones who were in the building itself, calm down. Entry fee is almost free. But if you don't see inside there's not much you're going to regret. A few young men with the history of the mansion and you can read other interesting dialogue between the sheets, a boat used in the summer, Ataturk, remains of the Disaster and guests rooms Believe. The most interesting of the exhibition as well as Ataturk with seat scale, strange shower system with a fashion sense and quite original bathing suit with hat. If you go away, it will leave your mouth open in great expectations or things do not go to see. A proud, old classy and determined to be a witness to the atmosphere; today's indifferent, undecided and outstanding atmosphere ideal to compare with.
