A rower

Wilhelm's white villa and a rower
When Hereke carpets became popular, entartaining guests in the huts wasn't suitable. They decided to build a villa. Before the visit of Wilhelm II the German Emperor in 1898, the villa was built in Abdülhamit's palace in three weeks in 1894. It was transported in seperate pieces by sea and constructed in a night.


  1. A very charming scene, and amazing story about the villa's construction!

  2. What a beautiful and peaceful scene!
