Topkapi Palace

The Topkapi Palace in Istanbul is a former residential building of the Ottomans sultans. The construction of the Palace began in 1459, six years after the conquest of Constantinople (Istanbul). In 1985, it was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site like many parts of the city of Istanbul. Now, since 1923, Topkapi Palace is a museum where you can visit the most important room of the palace such as the Imperial Treasury Room or the Ottoman Imperial Harem, which was the room of the wives of Sultans.
