About this place

The palace is in fact an entire complex consisting of many buildings and four main courtyards. The fact that is used to be home to about 4 000 people, speaks about the area it occupies. It was the main residence for Ottoman sultans and it is located on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list since 1985.

Its construction started in the mid 15th century and during 400 years that was occupied by the sultans it was renovated several times and some constructions were added. As it is visible, it is built near the shoreline overlooking sea and besides the residential buildings it contained mosques, a hospital and other useful constructions.

The Palace was transformed into a museum and the most important and best preserved as available for visitors in the beginning of the 20th century.
