  • Explore the last, largest, and probably most expensive palace of the Sultans of the Ottoman Empire.

Full Description

The grand Dolmabahçe Palace was the final residence of the Sultans of the Ottoman Empire (the earlier residence was Topkapı Palace). It has 285 rooms, 44 halls, 68 toilets and six hammams (Turkish baths) and is located right on the Bosphorus. There are beautiful furnishings, works of art and other priceless treasures on display but one of the most spectacular is the 4.5 tonne crystal chandelier hanging in the Grand Ceremonial Hall. It's the largest chandelier in the world!

When the Ottoman Empire came to an end and the Turkish Republic was formed, the Palace was used as a State Residence for visiting dignitaries. Later, it became the Presidential Residence of Atatürk in Istanbul. Today, Dolmabahçe Palace has been completely restored and is a very popular museum.

The guide was informative and answered all of our questions after the tour.

Elsa - August 21, 2019

Tour was a little bit crowded but the guide could handle it. The history and architecture of the palace is worth seeing.

Jody - July 01, 2019

It was easy to find the guide and he was very knowledgeable. I was with my elderly parents and they were walking slowly. The guide always waited us and asked if everything is OK. I really recommend it to everyone.
