  • As in Istanbul was visited multiple times and examined almost all of the advertised attractions, wanted something special. Once arriving in Istanbul went in Yildiz Palace, which means "Star". Turned out to be a small 2-storey Palace Museum in Yıldız Park. In this Palace there is no separation in the harem and formal halls, it is rather the pavilions of type "chalet". In interiors struck a large dining room with a luxurious inlaid mother-of-Pearl furniture and exhibition of stoves, fireplaces of various palaces in Istanbul. Tour through the halls of the Palace was not a tedious and very cognitive. At various times, the Palace was used for official delegations and lived there and the Iranian Sheikh, and French President Charles de Gaulle and President of Indonesia, Soekarno, and the King of Jordan. So as a museum it is open only 20 years. If you have time and want to see in Istanbul is something new, then visit this place, so much so that there's not a lot of tourists.

  • The palace complex was built in the late 19 century Sultan Abdul-Hamidaom II. He was afraid of an attack from the sea and a postponed residence away from water. Quite a nice place. Relatively small low-rise Palace, consisting of many pavilions. Not striking. It is poorly populated, but slides. The terrain is rugged.

  • Example of architecture of the end of empire, open space is too small. The brochure given to the entry has not been updated and still touting all of the rooms of the Palace, rooms to which access appears now limited (that goes without saying for the rooms opposite the museum transformed into Muslim Bookstore by Erdogan). We out so frustrated, especially not being able to visit the magnificent gardens. So close the whole of the site to the public... Go directly to go to the Park which is beautiful (but accessible only by a road to the opposite of this Palace...).
