1 – Topkapi Palace Museum in ISTANBUL ;

The Topkapi Palace is one of the largest palaces in Istanbul. It’s so big that it’s divided into 15 sections. The complex has four main courtyards and several smaller buildings, including a harem where female members of the family lived.  State officials and important government workers lived in the palace complex, including the Grand Vizier.

The palace was built by the order of Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror in 1459, just six years after capturing Constantinople. The palace served as the Ottoman Sultans’ residence and the court during the 15th and 16th centuries. . Over the years, the palace has been renovated and expanded after it was damaged in an earthquake in 1509 and a fire in 1665. After the Ottoman Empire ended in 1924, the palace was turned into a museum by the new Turkish Republic. The museum has a large collection of clothes, weapons, religious artifacts, and manuscripts.

2 – Dolmabahce Palace Museum in ISTANBUL ;

The Dolmabahce Palace is the largest, most expensive, and most intricately designed palace in Istanbul. Located on the European side of Istanbul in the Besiktas district, it was the main administrative center for the Ottoman Empire since the 19th century. Today, it is regarded as one of the top landmarks in Istanbul to visit.

Consisting of 285 rooms and 46 halls, the entirety of this palace is now open for tourists to visit. It is said that one of the largest Bohemian crystal chandeliers is kept in the palace, as well as the largest diamond.

The palace was fabricated using Baroque style architecture, with hints of Rococo, Neoclassical and traditional Ottoman styles.

3 – Beylerbeyi Palace Museum in ISTANBUL ;

The Beylerbeyi Palace was the final palace to take residence from the royals since it was where Sultan Abdulmecid II was placed under house arrest.  Located on the Bosphorus strait on the Asian side of Istanbul is the ornately decorated Beylerbeyi Palace.

It was commissioned by Sultan Abdülaziz in the middle of the 19th century as the Sultan’s summer residence, after the original palace, built by Sultan Mahmud, burned down.  It was a place where the sultan could entertain his foreign visitors, such as the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph, Prince Nikola of Montenegro, the German Emperor Wilhelm II, and Empress Eugénie of France.

It was said that Eugénie loved the palace so much that she had a window recreated for her bedroom in Tuileries Palace that was inspired by the palace.
