Dive into the rich history and legacy of Namık Kemal, a prominent Turkish nationalist poet, at our historic house museum nestled in the heart of Tekirdağ.

Situated atop a hill, the house is surrounded by a picturesque garden, complete with a quaint open-air theater, providing a serene ambiance for visitors to explore.

Step through the grand garden gate onto Namık Kemal Street, named in honor of the poet himself, and enter a world steeped in history. The exterior of the building, adorned with wood paneling, evokes the charm of an old wooden house, while the interior boasts marble flooring and meticulously crafted wooden rooms.
