Topkapı Sarayı

Last week I made the trip to Topkapı Palace in the old city and put my müze card to good use. I did this trip on my own; it was especially nice to just wander around the grounds at my own pace and take in the beautiful architecture. A bit of history: the palace was built in 1459, and housed the Ottoman sultans for about 400 years until Dolmabahçe Palace was built (I have yet to visit that one).
