ITINERARY

TOPKAPI PALACE
The great palace of the Ottoman sultans from the 15th to the 19th centuries housing an exquisite collection of cyrstal, silver, and Chinese porcelain, robes worn by the sultans and their families, the famous jewels of the Imperial Treasury, miniatures, the Holy Mantle; enshrining relics of the Prophet Mohammed.

Topkapı Palace was the main residence of the Sultan and his court. It was initially the seat of government as well as the imperial residence. Even though access was strictly regulated, inhabitans of the palace rarely had to venture outsince the palace functioned almost as an autonomous entity, a city within a city. Audience and consultation chambers and areas served for the political workings of the empire .

LITTLE HAGIA SOPHIA

Was built between 527-536 AD by Byzantian Emparor Justinianos I and his wife. It is known as oldest Byzantian building in Istanbul. The church was converted into a mosque during the Ottoman Empire period by Sultan Beyazid II.  Today the environment is a worth seeing natural culture center of the lost Ottoman Arts.
