The work of world famous Ottoman cartographer Piri Reis, who served during the time of Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent during the sixteenth century, has gone on display in Slovenia.
The “Piri Reis, the Cartographer of Sultan Suleyman” exhibition, which was opened by Slovenia Prime Minister Alenka Bratusek, is underway in the city of Pyrian at the Sergej Masera Maritime Museum.
Turkey’s ambassador to Slovenia, Serra Kaleli, also attended the opening ceremony, saying “(Piri Reis's) maps also show the Slovenian cities of Koper, Pyran and Izola. This is why the opening of such an exhibition here is very important.”
Piri Reis was primarily known today for his maps and charts collected in his Kitab-ı Bahriye (Book of Navigation), a book that contains detailed information on navigation, as well as very accurate charts (for their time) describing the important ports and cities of the Mediterranean Sea.
