A wax figure of the princess was created with a new face recognition technology for exhibit in the castle, Director Hüseyin Toprak said.

One of the exhibit's most popular items is the princess' crown, the director noted, adding that visitors can access a photo filter on site that makes them appear as though they are wearing the crown.
