  • Explore its corners and angles at your own pace
  • Learn how Turkish civilization evolved from humble beginnings into an empire

Description

Experience Turkey through the eyes of a sultan at one of Istanbul's most important landmarks, the Topkapi Palace.

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

Sultans walked through the halls of Topkapi Palace for over 400 years, and in these rooms social events and administrative politics shaped the development of Turkish civilization.

Maybe you need the whole day to immerse yourself in everything that can be found here. Enjoy the culture and Turkish pride as you walk through the large Imperial Gate, onto the green first courtyard and into the magnificent Gate of Homage to the second courtyard. It was here that Sultan Selim III supervised state functions and ceremonial assemblies.

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