- What’s On
Twenty-five Ottoman Turkish documents from the years 1455 to 1792, presented in the Venetian style, will be on display for a month at the Polish Central Archives of Historical Records (AGAD) in Warsaw.
This is another event in the 600th anniversary celebrations of the diplomatic relations between Poland and Turkey hosted in collaboration with the Yunus Emre Institute Warsaw and AGAD. The Polish State Archives, from which the documents come from, has 1,471 Ottoman documents, the largest such collection in Europe. These include firmans, treaties and letters written by sultans and their wives, including correspondence between Hürrem Sultan (Roxelana) and her daughter Mihrimah. There are also letters written by viziers, governors, ambassadors and other envoys.
