İstanbul Topkapı Palace Museum


Built on a domineering point along the Bosphorus after the conquest of Istanbul, the palace is located on the tip of the historic peninsula.  Used as state headquarters as well as home to the sultans until the 19th century during the Ottoman reign, Topkapi Palace was opened to public as a museum after the declaration of the Republic.

Spanning 700,000 meter squares of an area, the palace offers visitors its vast collection of more than 80,000 pieces of artwork, in addition to the temporary exhibits.
