Definitely a historical place, but more seems to be a puzzle and a mix of all that was available. Pretty nice, a definitely great park, so anyway worth having a long walk there.

We were lucky to visit the Palace in a time where it wasnt busy. It is magnificent, the palace buildings, the garden, the whole complex has a wonderful vibe. I found the kitchen exhibition very informative with lot of details on everyday life in the Sultans court. Dont miss the Harem, it is a place from an oriental fairy tale... beautiful details, marvelous decorations and interiors. You can easily spend around 3-4 hours in the Palace and Harem.

It's a nice museum, but everything is too expensive. You pay for extra places you want to visit inside. This is ridiculous. I pay 100 TL for entrance, but I cannot visit the whole museum. This system is fraudulent.
