On a hillside near to Rumeli Fortress or Hisarı is this small house built by the poet and anti-government rebel, Tevfik Fikret (1867-1915) who was a professor of Turkish Literature at Robert College. The house was converted to a museum in 1945 and exhibits many of his personal possessions along with a wonderful painting entitled “Sis (Mist)”, the work of Abdülmecid Efendi, and displayed next to it is Fikret’s poem of the same name that had given the inspiration to compose.  There are exhibits of Abdülhalk Hamid and Nigar Hanım who were also members of the Edebiyat-ı Cedide (New Literature) movement and associated with Fikret.  The house offers the most beautiful views, you can look out over to the Küçüksu Palace and the two streams that once formed the Sweet Waters of Asia.  Fikret was reburied here in 1961 and the house is closed to the public on Sunday and Monday.   The Aşiyan Cemetery sits between the house and the road and is the burial place for some important locals that include the poets Orhan Veli and Yahya Kemal Beyatlı, and playwright Ahmed Vefik Paşa.  There is a statue of Orhan Veli nearby that features a seagull from one of his most famous poems.
