Overview

Topkapi Museum is the big one.. the most important museum of Turkey and the Balkan Peninsula. It is an incomparably rich treasure-chest, brimming with things of historical importance. First, second, third and fourth courtyards, the Audience Hall, Divan -the high court-, Historical Kitchens, Royal Stables, the Treasury, Gardens, Kiosks...
Probably the best commentary on Ottoman History, art, and its culture is simply to come directly to the First Courtyard of this amazing Palace. Next place to see is Hagia Irene Church (from outside). Our final Places of interest are Caferaga Mederse and Sogukcesme Street. To see these things with a great guide.... well, you will never be quite the same ever again.
