The Rákóczi Museum also known as Rákóczi House, is a historic house museum in Tekirdağ, northwestern Turkey, which is a rebuilt 18th-century house devoted to the life and times of the Hungarian national hero, Francis II Rákóczi, who lived in this house in exile during his last years between 1720 and 1735. The house was transformed in 1982 into a museum after it was donated to the Hungarian State. Since then, it became a place of national pilgrimage for Hungarians.Take a look at our Tekirdag online travel planner to schedule your visit to Tekirdag Museum and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
Ferenc II Rákóczi was a Hungarian noble, the wealthiest landlord in the Kingdom of Hungary, and Prince of Transylvania, who led the first uprising between 1703 and 1711 against Austrian repression of the Habsburg Monarchy. After having failed, he was forced into exile. He lived some years in Poland, then tried to find asylum in Britain and later in France without success. Rákóczi and his entourage finally landed in Gallipoli, Ottoman Empire in 1717 accepting an offer by Sultan Ahmet III, who sent a sailing ship to pick up them. After living in Edirne and Istanbul, he settled then in 1720 in Tekirdağ moving into a house, which was assigned to him and where he lived until his death on April 8, 1735.
