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.
One benefit is that there are not a lot...More
Although this is a small palace, it is open to walk through on the inside and the furnishings are amazing. Baccarat crystal chandeliers, beautiful carpets and window features. The audio tour is very thorough and you can take your time inside. Disappointed no photos allowed...More

Home to more than half a million residents, Uskudar on the Asian side of the Bosphorus is one of Istanbul’s most densely populated neighbourhoods. 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.
