The Sakip Babanci Museum in Istanbul

The Sakip Sabanci Museum in Istanbul

Last time I went to Istanbul I was with my father, and I had the chance to go with him at an exhibition. It was something concerning transilvanian textiles, I don’t remember. But what caught my eye is the location: the Sakip Sabanci Museum, on a hill in Istanbul‘s Emirgan Park, overlooking the Bosphorus, was built at the beginning of the 20th century in the Italian architectural style, and it’s not just a simple museum in Istanbul. Today it is the modern Sabanci Univerisy’s Museum, equipped with the most advanced museum technology, and a lot of important exhibitions came here: “Picasso in Istanbul“, “An Ottoman Collection in Portugal” from the Lisbon’s Gulbenkian Foundation (which I recommend to everybody, it’s wonderful!), or the “Genghis Khan” exhibition. So, if you want to experience world cultures, just head for the Sakip Sabanci Museum, when you always find incredible surprise!
