Mudanya Armistice Museum

Mudanya Mütareke Müze Evi

It was here, in this building, that the Turkish victory in the War of Independence was formally acknowledged and where the Ankara-based Turkish government first met under the leadership and presidency of Atatürk as the sole representative body of the people.

The Mudanya house in which the armistice was signed was built in the nineteenth century by Aleksandr Ganyanof, a Russian timber merchant. The house was later bought by Mehmet Hayri Ipar, a prominent local merchant who had been born in the house and whose family had been its tenants. Ipar bequeathed this house – one of great importance to the history of the Turkish Republic – to the Mudanya municipality so that it could be made into a museum.

Under the pretext of this agreement, Anatolia was divided up amongst the victorious powers and a gradual occupation began.

The negotiations, which began on the 3rd of October, frequently ended in deadlock when it came to the issue of the Straits and Eastern Thrace, to the degree that on the 6th of October Mustafa Kemal stated that the Turkish army would be mobilised in the face of a continuing diplomatic impasse. After the French stated their objections to a resumption of hostilities, negotiations resumed on the 7th. However, General Harington, citing the fact that Lord Curzon was in Paris and that he had thus received no communications, moved to have the conference postponed.
