Topkapi Palace Museum

Only the palace is the part of the tour which has so much to see and to be said. A guided tour is a must to really understand the meaning of the most popular attractions of Istanbul. In short, the Topkapi Palace was the imperial residence of the Ottoman Sultans, from Fatih Sultan Mehmet, the Conqueror, until 1856. It became a museum in 1924. Parts of the palace and the Harem, Baghdad Pavilion in Hall Revan, Sofa Pavilion, and the courtroom are distinguished by its architectural heritage, while in other sections artifacts are displayed which reflect the palace life. The museum also has collections from the imperial treasury including Chinese porcelain, weapons, calligraphy etc. It is closed on Tuesday.

Galata Tower

Walking further across the Galata bridge you will see the Galata Tower. The tower was built as Christea Turris (Tower of Christ) in 1348 during an expansion of the Genoese colony in Constantinople. This is is a medieval stone tower in the Galata. Built as watchtower to help protect the city especially by spotting fires, this still remains as one of the dominating structures in the city. The cone-capped cylinder dominates the skyline and offers a panoramic vista of Istanbul. The view from the top is completely breathtaking from every angle. Seeing some of the more modern structures from the top makes one realize how diverse this old city of Istanbul is.
