Artvin Culture House
According to its epigraph, the house was built in 1799 and its owner was Bicanoğlu Yahya Ağa. The structure which is a masterpiece of Ottoman-Turkish architecure was recorded as “ a mansion with a garden” in the notices of Ottoman land registers. Beautiful examples of carving and engraving can be seen in the house. The cypress tree motifs on the right and the left of the fireplace have a special meaning in Turkish culture. When we analyse the Turkish culture from the past to the present, it can be seen that tree motifs have been used often in the similar ways. The cypress tree motifs which symbolize the tree of life were used in the tiles, tombstones, rugs, fountains etc. by Ottoman craftsmen. The resemblance of cypress tree to the minarets is also a reason why it was used often in the Ottomans. The restoration and the garden design of the Culture House were made and now it is a place where you can taste local dishes. The Culture House is 3 km away from the Artvin City Centre.
