There were lots of plaques here today as it was a special day to celebrate 97 years since Kemal Ataturk came to parliament and it was also children's day. The statue is in really good condition, right on the sea front. The Turkish people love to take selfies here.

Do some research after you go and see this statue if you are into that sort of thing. If not it is still a great thing to view and get a picture of to say you have seen it.

This statue is of the man who made Turkey independent. It is very interesting and gives you an insight into turkish history. It is by the marina you cannot miss it. Well worth a photo.

This statue is down by the marina. It's in a lovely spot and is beautifully kept. It's a prefect tribute to a great man.

The town has shown a lot of respect to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk with this statue. It's brilliantly presented, well kept and stands out against the background flags.

It is located on the marina. Just make a beautiful walk from your hotel at night and enjoy all the views on your way there. A big statue worth taking a look at and close to lits of attractions.

Just a brief word, Mustafa Kemal Ataurk is part of Turkish history you will pass the statue as you stroll down the promenade to the Marina.
