Interesting small museum where you can find some of the personal belongings of the Sultan and his family. The first part of the measure is focused on calligraphy while the second part is very interesting. A small gift shop is also available.

In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for

parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather
