GETTING PREPARED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL AHMET YAKUPOĞLU CITY, ART, AND DESIGN SYMPOSIUM…

Kütahya is a great city with its sycamore trees, fountains and springs, as well as its tiles! Kütahya is a heroic city with Dumlupınar which has the spirit of Çanakkale!

Kütahya means Rumi (Mevlana) as much as Konya does.
