Topkapı Palace

Istanbul Palaces

The Topkapı Palace is the foremost historical and cultural location, as well as the number 1 tourist attraction to see in Istanbul's Historical Peninsula.

Built after Istanbul became the capital city of the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century, this palace has served as the Sultans’ residence for about 400 years. The magnificent palace is made up of several buildings, courtyards, gardens and pavilions – it takes well over half a day to visit most of the exhibition halls.

Apart from being the Ottoman Dynasty's residence, the palace was used for royal entertainment as well as diplomatic occasions. Now, the palace serves as a museum that displays the priceless treasures of the Ottoman Dynasty:  jewelery, weapons, clothes as well as Islamic relics.
