  • its old its beautiful it has history charam nice garden just a real nice place for a small little walk amazing 
  • This Palace we visited in 2012, with a guided tour through the old town. It is very interesting to learn about life and life time of the Ottoman Empire. In the halls of the Palace lies the ethnographic museum, there are many scenes from the life of using wax.
