"Topkapi Palace" Topkapi Palace Tip by MalenaN

Topkapi Palace, Istanbul: 276 reviews and 651 photos


Shortly after the conquest of Istanbul Mehmet the conqueror started to build the palace. After that sultans lived here for almost 400 years until sultan Abdülmecid I left Topkapi for Dolmabahce Palace in 1853.
The palace is not one single building but several buildings around four big courtyards.
