Main Post Office or Buyuk Postane Istanbul
This grand building with stone steps leading up to it was built between 1905 and 1909 by Vedat Tek, one of the main architects to come from the First National Architecture movement.

The Design

The domed rooms at each end of the structure merge Turkish national and Westernised styles, and Kutahya tiles have been used to decorate the façade.  

The Museum

There is a small museum inside the post office that will bring joy to any stamp collector, and it has original wooden furniture, old post boxes and stamps and is worth seeing if only for its interesting interior, especially the attractive staircase.

Location

Main Post Office is located in Sirkeci in Fatih .
