Constantine Caratheodory Museum

It’s already operated as a research center. Originating from Vyssa of Evros, opposite to Adrianople, Konstantinos Karatheodoris was born in Berlin on 13 September 1873 where his father was the ambassador of Turkey. He became a leading mechanical and mathematical worldwide, worked as a professor at four German Universities and Metsovio Polytechnic while he undertook with the behest of Venizelos to organize the Ionian University in Izmir, Athens and Thessaloniki. The work of Karatheodori has touched various aspects of mathematics, but its promotion through the museum touches all mathematics and their history. Karatheodori was a leading engineer and worked in the construction of the Suez Canal. Mathematics were however those who stole his heart. Among his students was Albert Einstein.
