Onto the Asian side of Istanbul and we find another magnificent, well decorated posh looking Palace similar inside to the Dolmabahce to some extent. Certainly no expenses spared in decorating this one. Close to the Bosphorus bridge. Well maintained place. Coffee shop available. No individual entries allowed, the tours inside are all guided for security reasons. Well worth it. Toilets... 更多
This palast is a beautiful little place you have to see. The rooms are breathtaking. For us as a normal persons it is out of our imagination what kind of richness it was in these days. If you come to Istanbul it is a must do! There is the sultans gate... so if he wanted to go somewhere there is... 更多
Located on the Asian side of the Bosphorus, Beylerbeyi Palace is a great palace to visit in Istanbul. It's very similar to Dolmabahçe Palace in terms of architectural style but it's much smaller, much less crowded and there are no queues to wait for. Built between 1863-1865 by the order of Sultan Abdülaziz on top of the ruins of the... 更多
Beylerbeyi Palace was built by the Ottoman Sultan Abdulaziz between 1861-1865, and the architect was Sarkis Balyan. The palace was designed as summer residence.

One of the... 更多
This palace was built as the summer residence for the Sultan Aziz in 1865. It is located down the Bosporus about 2-3 miles from Dolmabahce but on the Asian side. One wonders why and what possesses one to build a second palace so close to the primary residence and use it as a summer home. Isn't the weather the same?,... 更多
Really Sultans used to live in different life. Big palace with 24 rooms. Many halls, corridors with marvelous decorations. Nice Turkish Hamam facing the sea and beautiful garden. We had to wait 30 minutes to get English translation so decided to go with Turkish group and read only. Entrance ticket is TL 20 each.
For my personal taste Beylerbeyi palace is the best in Istanbul ! It's less touristic , unique location and what is interesting - here you feel more mix of East and West architecture and culture - the chandeliers , the columns , the furniture . Simply the gem !!!
Lovely place to visit. We came here as part of a full day organised tour. Stories about the rooms and fittings very interesting. Loved the retro fitted bathroom for Edward 8th. Chandeliers are gorgeous! On a hot day the palace is significantly cooler (catches the sea breeze). It was only lived in for a few months of the year by... 更多
