The inside story

The Topkapi Palace is one of the largest, most visited places in Istanbul. It was built between 1466 and 1478 by the conquerer, Sultan Mehmet II. It's on the top of a hill in a small peninsula, with views of the Golden Horn to the north, the Marmara Sea on the south and the Bosphorus to the northeast. The palace itself was used as the political center of the Ottoman Empire between the 15th and 19th centuries but is now used as a museum to help visitors take a step back into the real history of the city.
