Fatih sultan Mehmet, the Conqueror of Istanbul has ordered to build two fortresses along the Bosphorus. One of them is the rumeli Fortress and has been build in 4 months in 1452..

During a boat tour in Bosphorus you will sure pass in fornt of this fortress and Enjoy the beauty of it..

In summer days there is a festival called as Rumeli Festival is taking place inside the Amphitheater and many live concerts and shows are taking place inside the fortress...

Watch live your favourite singer, May be Tarkan :), inside this amazing fortress just a long the Bosphorus..
