Asiyan Museum

Aşiyan is the house of Tevfik Fikret, the distinguished poet. After moving here in 1906, he fulfilled his ambition to live in a house that views Bosphorus landscape. The poet built his house at this spot he had loved for so long, by Rumelian Fortress and next to Robert College. He used to visit this most beautiful spot of the Bosphorus just across Göksu frequently to paint and relax with his wife. They used to dream and make plans for the house they would build right there taking into account every single detail including rooms and furnishings. Aşiyan’s location itself is a clear manifestation of Fikret’s refined taste. As can be seen in the original visuals of Aşiyan exhibited in the gallery, he drafted the architectural plan of the house and got it built among trees over the Fortress and named it “Aşiyan” meaning “Home” in Persian.
