KALENDER

huber1In between Yeniköy and Tarabya the tiny Bosphorus suburb of Kalender is sometimes said to have been named after a lost lodge of the Kalender dervishes although it was more probably named after the Kalender Palace, built here in the 17th century, then replaced several times although today the only traces of it are a garden wall. 

The one specific reason either to hop out of the bus here or perhaps to stroll back from Tarabya would be to admire the late 19th-century Huber Köşkü, an enormous wooden mansion originally designed by the Art Nouveau architect Raimondo d'Aronco for Auguste Huber, representative to the Ottoman court of the German company that supplied it with rifles. In 1985 it was restored to serve as a summer retreat for the president.huber2Detail of Huber Köşkü

In 2014 there was talk about turning it into a hotel
