"tripadvisor of tokapi palace" Topkapi Palace Tip by tripadvisor34

Topkapi Palace, Istanbul: 277 reviews and 656 photos

The huge palace was built just after conquering of Constantinople in 1453. It was the main residence of Ottoman sultans till 19th century, when they moved to other palaces.

Palace is a full range of different type of buildings from sultans? kitchens, library to audience chamber and famous harem. Some places are still quite oriental, and some are already made in Western fashion (let?s say, rococo details in interior).

I haven?t been to harem, as I though all in all visiting full palace area is too overpriced. Anyway, visiting main parts of it is quite worthy ? to have idea how sultans lived.

The price of ticket for an adult was 20 liras.
