Your experience


  • Take a look at one of the most important landmarks of Istanbul, the Topkapi Palace
  • Explore its nooks and crannies at your own pace
  • Learn how Turkish civilization developed from humble beginnings to a vast empire


Experience Turkey through the eyes of a sultan during a visit to one of Istanbul's most important landmarks, the Topkapi Palace

See how Ottoman style architecture blends with Islamic influence. Learn how the palace became a symbol of Turkey's transformation from a feudal society (exchange of land for service or work) to a powerful empire.

Sultans walked through the halls of Topkapi Palace for more than 400 years and in these rooms social events and administrative policies shaped the development of Turkish civilization.

Maybe you need the whole day to really dive deep into everything that is to be found here. Enjoy the culture and Turkish pride as you pass through the Great Emperor's Gate to the greened first courtyard and into the magnificent Gate of Honour at the second courtyard. It was precisely at this point that Sultan Selim III supervised state functions and ceremonial gatherings.

See the treasure chamber, bathhouses, harems and an armoury and feel the imperial charm of halls and royal chambers. Audio guides are available on site for a deeper understanding.
