Where to travel when in Istanbul
The Topkapi Palace was built by Mehmed between 1460 and 1478 and was the center of the Ottoman Empire for almost 400 years. Visiting the palace, you can experience the atmosphere of a medieval palace, get to see how the Ottoman dynasty lived, see the decorations of the oriental palace and get acquainted with the daily life and household objects of the inhabitants who lived in the palace. The building itself was turned into a museum in the early 20th century by Ataturk.
The palace is one of the symbols of Istanbul. It was built by the Ottoman architects who worked as father and son, Garabet and Nikogos Balyan, by order of Sultan Abdulmejdid. The palace wonderfully blends the European architectural tradition with the art of an Ottoman harem. The residence of President Atatürk, who lived and died on November 10, 1938, in its original form, is still intact and remarkable.
Considered the most important landmark of the historical peninsula, it was built from 1609 to 1616 during the reign of Ahmed I. The Blue Mosque is an outstanding architectural work, with beautiful and ornate oriental decorations. There are two divisions of Ottoman Byzantine and classical architecture.
This is a historical site that owes its origin to Mehmed II the Conqueror, who ordered the construction of a bazaar in 1453, after the Byzantine markets. Today, it is a huge space, which has been rebuilt, repaired and renovated several times, and covers several streets and squares, with more than 91 million visitors in 2020.
The choice is vast: handicrafts, jewelry shops, boutiques, oriental carpets, antiques and traditional crafts such as calligraphy, porcelain making and leather work. A visit to the large bazaar will undoubtedly leave a vivid impression and provide colorful images to remember the trip.
This is the second most important mosque after the Blue Mosque. It was built by the architect Mimar Sinan on the orders of Suleiman the Magnificent.
It contains the mausoleums where Suleiman, his wife Hürrem Sultan and their daughter Mihrimah are buried.
It is the centerpiece of a huge complex of baths, kitchens, a library, etc.. In the library, medieval manuscripts can be consulted.
