Topkapi Palace ,Istanbul . Dec 02, 2016
Topkapi Palace-- Topkapi Palace is the charm of Istanbul .Amazing to see the palace of a sultan .This is easily the coolest place to visit in the city. The Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque are very near , recommendations ,be sure to visit the Harem buildings - all accept museum card .This palace is a charming place ,the buildings are wonderful .Make you pay extra and visit the Harem ,the place with the fountain has a great view of the sea .A little crowded at the queue areas .Topkapi palace is huge , gardens are big .At some point you` ll hear a beautiful voice reading versus of the Qoran ,the islamic relics are the main attraction such as ,The foot print of Prophet Mohammad , and swords collections of his Caliphs .The armory of Ottoman empire is another impressive collection .This is a huge complex of buildings and you can easily spend a day here .

A must-see in Istanbul Aug 20, 2011
It has a great collection of items from the Ottoman history as well as some religios artifacts.

You should save a whole day for visiting Topkapi Palace, since it's really huge. There two sections which you need to buy seperate tickets. If you don't have much time selamlık section, which has all the general exhibitions is ok for you.. But if you have time, it's worth to buy the extra ticket and tour the Harem to see the tresury and amazing jewelry as well as to get the sense of the harem life of Ottoman sultans and their lifes.

I can write tons of things but I see many people has already written the detailed information of a nice visit to the palace.. So I just wanna reccommend to everyone who has a chance to visit Topkapı Palace. You'll not be disappointed.

Have a great trip in Istanbul :))
