  • Weight of impressions from visiting the Palace. Magnificently. Beautifully. Stylish. Entrance only. With a guided tour of the Museum. One bad thing-only in Turkish or English. With the Russians. I even wrote the review. The Russians pretty much. And at a local gift shop bought the book "Turkish" in Russian. All is not lost.
