Topkapı Sarayı Istanbul Reviews
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 :))
