The Greek Embassy in Istanbul

ALSO APPEARS IN THE ARCHIVE AS: Greek Embassy in Istanbul

The first diplomatic authority of Greece in the Ottoman Empire was established in 1834, the first ambassador being Konstantinos Zografos. A fully-fledged Greek embassy opened in 1853. Greece’s diplomatic representation was discontinued during periods of crises between Greece and Turkey, while late in 1923 the embassy was transferred to the new capital of the Turkish state, Ankara.
