Reviews of Topkapi Palace • 3
A wondrous palace in Sultan ahmat, close to the Blue mosque.
On that same hill is Topkapi Palace which takes up pretty much the entire hill and I only got to see the entrance because it was closed. But I imagine it’s a real life Sultan’s Palace on the inside.
This palace was one of the main seats of the Ottoman Empire in the 1400s. Today, it is a famous tourist attraction overlooking the Sea of Marmara and Bosphorus. The tourists can get a sneak peak into the life of the Ottomans by visiting the Harem quarters, looking at the porcelain ware as well as taking in the entire architecture. It has also been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
