Dolmabahçe Palace

Turkey is not only full of culture, amazing food, generous people but also amazing ancient and modern architecture.
Recently I went to Dolmabahçe Palace. Dolmabahçe Palace was built for Sultan Abdülmecıd I and his family.  The palace was home to six Sultans but in 1924 its ownership was transferred to the national heritage of the new Turkish Republic.  Guided tours are available to view Dolmabahçe Palace.
The Palace is beyond words, it has amazing architecture and takes you back in time. I couldnt take photos inside as it is not permitted like many other museums but here are some of the photos I did take.

The interior of the palace is to die for. Each room and chamber contains a different style of interior structure. The chambers, paintings, the furniture as well as the garden of the palace is spectacular. I must not forget to mention its vıew-the Bosphorus. The Sultans did enjoy beautiful scenery let me tell you that! I strongly suggest a visit to this place. I repeat it is beyond words. Talk to you in my next post.
