Marko Pasa Mansion or Kosku Istanbul

Marko Pasa Mansion or Kosku Istanbul
This superb building is inside the naval base grounds at Anadolu Kavagi and was once the home to a famous and wise Greek doctor Marco Apostolidis (1814-1888).  He was the chief physician to Sultan Abdulaziz , and the army, and also the founder of the Red Crescent (Red Cross) in Turkey

As you leave the harbour on the ferry to Sariyer you get a view of this magnificent white mansion that has a lantern shaped gazebo on the top.  Marko Paşa would spend most of his summers on Burgaz Island and is where he died, and was buried at his winter house in Kuzguncuk that is now a primary school.  There is a Turkish saying “tell your problem to Marko Paşa” that is a parody of the fact that he never actually listened to anyone’s problems.
