    bed-room fountain

    This is a fountain in the bed room. That time there was no tv or cd-player... and this is the way the Sultans used to make a noise not to let their own noise to be overheard!

    Bosphorus from Topkapi

    Tour in Topkapi palace can easily exhaust 4 hours of time or more. There is just so much to see. This area is near the restaurent inside Topkapi palace where you can have a good view of Bosphorus.

    An alley inside the Palace

    The Topkapi Palace was the home of the Ottoman sultans for nearly 400 years, and from here the sultans ruled the Ottoman Empire.

    Entrance to Harem

    When visiting Topkapi, dont miss the Harem, the private quarters of the sultan and his family. It is a whole town itself, with its own kitchen, hospital and baths.
