Ottoman and European soldiers and uniforms from the 14th century to the end of World War I have been revived once more
An exhibition named “Living Battling Ottomans Dioramas” has opened in Istanbul at a former palace of Ottoman Sultans, Yildiz Palace/Museum.

Weapons, uniforms, medals, flags, military tools, photographs, soldiers… The wars of the past are now very close to us. Ottoman and European soldiers and uniforms from the 14th century to the end of World War I have been revived once more to commemorate historical events and bolster the collective memory.

 

Cuhadaroglu Holding Company CEO Nejat Cuhadaroglu is the person behind this huge collection. Cuhadaroglu has been collecting historically themed models for 25 years and military objects for 15 years. These objects are now being exhibited in the exhibition from now until June 6.

 

Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the Yildiz Palace Foundation, the exhibition features miniature battle scenes that recreate a number of battles from 1453 to 1923 as well as scale models designed and made by Cuhadaroglu himself. The exhibition's opening ceremony took place on April 12 with the participation of Ertugrul Gunay, the Turkish minister of Culture and Tourism.
