This summer residence of the Sultans was also used to house foreign heads of state visiting the Ottoman capital. Several palaces had been built and demolished at this site over the years. The present structure was built between 1861-1865 and has six...more

Beautiful olde world palace (now museum) showing the insane wealth of years gone by.
Good insight into how the upper crust lived. Beautifully decorated, with huge Venetian chandeliers, opulent carpets and hand carved furnishings
Seen from the Bridge of the Martyrs of 15/7/2016 Beylerbeyi Sarayı does not seem as impressive as it actually is. Seen from the Palace the bridge seems to be a constant threat with all the traffic up there and nevertheless it is so close and...More
This is a really beautiful palace with a little park. Maybe not what you would do on your very first visit to Istanbul (I would recommend Dolmabahce palace for that) but nice if you want to go a bit off the beaten track.
Located on the Asian side of Bosphorus, Beylerbeyi Palace is a beautiful palace which was residence of the Ottoman emperors during summer months. We were very touched by the beautiful reception hall with its running waters.
This palace for some reason is really pushed by tour companies or hotel but it is a summer palace that I have enjoyed visiting twice
The ex summer palace of the ottoman sultans
One that is still very well kept and worth a visit
I love visiting museums and historical places. That is why we chose İstanbul. With our little group, we went to Beylerbeyi Palace with our guide. The building is magnificent and all four sides smell history. But the guide was such negative person that we were...More
This is located on the Asian side just underneath the big suspension bridge. It's not easy to get to, so if you are limited for time I would suggest that Dolmabache palace is a better option.

Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighborhoods. Once a Greek colony, later a haven for people from across the Mediterranean and the Middle East, this gateway to Asia has been an active and diverse hub for eons. Still, visitors to Uskudar are often more overcome by its myriad treasures than by its many thousand
residents. And with fairytale settings such as the “Maiden’s Tower” as well as grand examples of Ottoman Era architecture, plenty of parks, a gorgeous and lengthy coastline, and some of Turkey’s holiest sites, there’s no end to the sightseeing possibilities. Easily reached from the city’s European shores via a steady network of ferries, time spent in Uskudar reveals a “real life” Istanbul that many who experience find extremely fascinating.
