Topkapi Palace, which was a major residency of the Ottoman sultans for approximately 400 years, was transformed into a museum on the imperial era in 1924. The complex has hundreds of rooms with endless interesting collections and artefacts from the Ottoman era.

How to visit on a superyacht: Whether on a luxury yacht charter in Turkey or visiting on a private yacht Istanbul has excellent superyacht facilities. Kalamis and Fenerbahçe marinas are situated side-by-side, five miles east of the city centre and make a great base from which to explore Istanbul.
