Boasting serene surroundings and opulent interiors, it's easy to see why Ottoman sultans liked to spend their vacation in Beylerbeyi Sarayı (TBMM-Milli Saraylar). The grand residence was built in the 1860s and served as both a summer home and as a venue to entertain visiting heads of state, including Empress Eugenie of France and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Embark on a guided or self-guided tour of the palace and imagine the life of the privileged few that lived here. The rich original furnishings, including ornate chandeliers, colorful carpets, and an indoor fountain, help bring the site to life. From the palace windows you can enjoy views of the Bosporus.

  • This is the place is tough and go on the Asian side. Not small but luxurious Palace in the only tour inside, but worth a look. Few tourists Termini but I feel like a small Palace of berelbay visited the carefully.

  • The Architect Sarkis Balyan constructed the Beylerbeyi Palace between 1861 and 1865 for Abdulaziz. The exterior decoration was adopted from European Neo-Classicism but the interior was completed in the traditional Ottoman style. This palace was used both as a summer lodge and as a residence for visiting royalty.
  • Here is an Imperial Ottoman summer residence built in the 1860. The Beylerbeyi Palace is located at the Asian side of the Bosphorus. I came here with a day trip Bosphorus tour. So we had no need to wait a long queue to go inside the palace. Guide can explain the history of the palace and the harem. The palace looks its most attractive from the Bosphorus when you're in the cruise.
  • Nicer than Dolmabace, in my opinion. It's well worth coming across to see it. You can only visit with a tour; English language ones are occasional, so check times to avoid waiting; otherwise the gardens are a nice place to kill some time. Very easy to get to on the 15 bus from Uskudar ferry. Walk a little further to the Beylerbey pier for a nice view and lots of dining options. This palace is yet more evidence that Asian Istanbul is greatly underrated!
  • A beautiful spot on the Bosphorus from the Ottomans.
  • Kesin görülmeli.
