Okay - I have in the past considered joining the Navy.

When I told Ivan this he burst out laughing. NOOOOO - they are not all gay. Well, maybe the ensigns are - but I wanted to be an officer.

Turkey's Naval Museum in the neighberhood of Besiktas is on the European Shore about 2.5 km northeast of the Galata Bridge. Admission is 3 million lira and another 5 million lira if you want the pass in order to take photos. In the museum you can find cannons, a partial old submarine, paintings, and a detailed account of the Naval engagements during the campaign at Gallipoli.

The museum is closed on Monday and Tuesdays.

Address: Besiktas district
Directions: in Besiktas next to the Besiktas ferry terminal.
