Excursion to Topkapi from Side

The first object to visit is Topkapi Palace or Cannon Gate, which for many years was the main residence of the sultans. It was built on the orders of Mehmed the Conqueror in the period from 1475 to 1478. In the middle of the sixteenth century, Suleiman I, at the request of Roksolana, built a harem here (you can visit it for a fee). The area of the majestic building is 700 square meters. A wall was erected around it, the length of which is 1400 m. A huge number of exhibits are collected here (only 12,000 pieces of kitchen porcelain).

The building is surrounded by four minarets. It is also striking that on the walls of this building side by side, harmoniously complementing one another, the symbols of the Christian and Arab faiths. Despite the passage of centuries, the grandeur and richness of decoration have been preserved here. The temple became a museum in 1935 thanks to the order of Kemal Ataturk (the first Turkish president).

After visiting two striking sights, you can take a break and enjoy delicious dishes. Further along the route you will find the old district of the city - Hippodrome. Byzantine columns and obelisks will open to your eyes. Then the group will move to the Blue Mosque, which is located on the main square of Sultanahmet. Its construction began in 1609 and lasted for seven whole years. Rare marble and precious grades of stone acted as the material. A niche for prayers (mahrib) was carved from a huge solid block of marble. An unusual black stone was brought into it from Mecca. The painting of the mosque is made in white and blue colors. The light falling from the windows (there are more than 250 of them) makes the patterns shimmer and it seems that the mosque is actually blue.

If you speak Turkish, you can bargain with the sellers. In any case, everyone will be able to purchase unique spices and national sweets (their cooking recipes are original), buy jewelry and various goods quite inexpensively.
