A Whirly Gig

The original whirling dervish hall was built in 1491 and was converted to a museum in 1946. Still there are regular whirling performances on irregular dates. Just check with the museum for times and tickets. Remember that latecomers are not allowed and photography is prohibited. Relax and respectfully enjoy the ceremony.
