Stunning rooms and so much history! The pool on the inside and the staircases were magnificent, I wish photos were permitted inside! There's also a gift shop, and I loved the gates going out towards the water. Guided tours in Turkish and English are provided...More

The palace is a beautiful piece of architecture inherited from the Ottoman Empire. However, the additional pavilions and gardens are closed to the public (at least since 2011). The tour inside the actual palace is guided but they try to show you everything so quickly...More

Easy to park by and cheap to enter, this place is a peaceful haven and yet paradoxically beneath the hyper busy first Bosphorus bridge. The palace itself is accessible only by timed tours, in English or Turkish, which are slow enough to enable a good...More

Located on the Asian side of the Bosphorus, Beylerbeyi Palace is a great palace to visit in Istanbul. It's very similar to Dolmabahçe Palace in terms of architectural style but it's much smaller, much less crowded and there are no queues to wait for. Built...More

Beylerbeyi Palace was built by the Ottoman Sultan Abdulaziz between 1861-1865, and the architect was Sarkis Balyan. The palace was designed as summer residence. The palace looks its most attractive from the Bosphorus, from where its two bathing pavillions, one for the harem (women's only)...More

Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on
the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s
most densely populated neighbourhoods. Once a Greek
colony, later a haven for people from across the
Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to
Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons.
Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by
its myriad treasures than by its many thousand
