Vlora Han Istanbul

Vlora Han Istanbul
From the steps of the post office and to the right you will see the Vlora Han. Vlora Han is an art nouveau masterpiece designed by an unknown architect and greatly resembles the more famous Casa Botter found on Istiklal Street designed by the Italian architect Raimondo d'Aronco.  

Although it’s completely covered in black grime it remains impressive with its adorning delicate stone roses and elaborate wrought-iron balconies and windows.  Vlora Han has many bay windows
 and balconies at the front, although the sides have no balconies just simple elegant guardrails and it differs from other art nouveau works as the attention to detail is exceptional; the floral motifs of rosebuds and other flowers are beautiful. Unfortunately the buildings structure is in a very bad condition and needs urgent attention and many of the ornamental decorations have been covered over by billboards and signs.

Close by on Yeni Postane Road is the newly restored First National Architectural styled building designed for the Yapı ve Kredi Bank and directly opposite is the rather austere Teutonic building of the Deutsche Bank that was designed in 1890 by August Jasmund.
