The exhibition "Distant Neighbour Close Memories" sheds light on the 600 years of commercial, historical and political relations between Turkey and Poland. The history of the relations between the two countries from the 15th century on, including the Battle of Vienna of 1683 which proved to be a turning point not only in the histories of Ottoman Empire and Poland but in European history as well, is explained through documents, maps, paintings, personal effects of prominent personalities, and Ottoman spoils, such as tents and weapons from the Battle. devam için tıklayın!
