One of the classic examples of Ottoman architecture in Safranbolu is the Kaymakamlar Museum. The museum is located in a charming house constructed in the early years of the 18th century. It’s a typical example of a Turkish house, replete with two entrances, a harem and gardens. The harem is located on the first floor of the house. A visit to this house is must if you want to understand the dally life of Turkish nobility. Tiny details to make the life of the owners easy are visible everywhere, like the Ferris wheel transporting food from the kitchen to the eating area. The various woods used in the making of the house give each room a district sense of individuality, yet all the individual rooms form a part of the house. The gardens, too, have been designed in a way to allow ventilation in the rooms on the ground floor. Visit this house for a lesson in architecture and history.
