  • The Palace area is huge. It consists of several buildings. The main Palace, the venue of the harem, a few booths and beautiful gardens. You will need a long time to turn around. But worth the effort. It was the last residence of the sultans

  • The entrance to the gallery just 5 lire (cost of a hamburger) visiting the Gallery, you will see not only pictures, but the decoration of the Palace of the last Sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Painting ceilings and walls, chandeliers are worth it to see them! Darkened halls, paintings skillfully highlighted that provides an excellent overview on either side and points to the passionate concern for the exhibits. In the Gallery of a Hall with paintings by Ivan Aivazovsky, and here are the pictures that are not known to the general public, at least, on the Internet I could not find them. Interest and other authors and their works

  • Dolmabahce Palace harem section of gorucek the art exhibition of the way. If you received a free ticket if you are already a full 2 pounds discount. absolutely gorgeous works of art from the Ottoman-era emphasis on art available. with quite nice detail of each image whether headphones anlatılsa I think that it would be so much better. After his tour of the Selamlık of the Palace and Harem's picture gallery so I suggest at least 1 hour allocation. The first period of Turkish painters and draws attention of foreign House Painters pictures. Most of the pictures seen in history lessons at school in this museum are exhibited in its original version. Aivazovsky and Fausto Zonaro tables are very good. Though very few works of Osman Hamdi Bey and İbrahim calli.
