Dolmabahçe Palace

Crowd  at church near the Eresin Taxim Premier

The sumptuous and ornate Dolmabahce Palace shows the clear influence of European decoration and architecture on the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century. Built by Sultan Abdul Mecid I in 1854, it replaced Topkapı Palace as the main residence of the sultans.

The formal gardens are punctuated with fountains, ornamental basins, and blooming flower beds while inside the sheer splendor and pomp of the Turkish Renaissance style is dazzling. The interiors mix rococo, baroque, neoclassical, and ottoman elements, with mammoth crystal chandeliers, liberal use of gold, French-style furniture, and dazzling ceiling frescoes. By subway just 5 minutes from Eresin Taxim & Premier.
