Kostantsaliev’s House is a two storey 16th century merchant house is a reflection of the Ottoman days. There are simple rooms with large seating areas full of pillows. There are some really interesting things to see, such as the locking system on the trunks, door locking mechanisms, and the security systems.
The large heavy doors incorporate a three ‘dead bolt’ system and squeaky, steep stairs to detect intruders. There are bars on the windows and an enclosed yard. Safety and protection was definitely a priority. The nursery is also interesting with its ceiling mounted swinging cradle. It’s an interesting place to visit.
