This is the Rumeli Hisar Fort, a gigantic Ottoman fortress overlooking the Bosphorus. In 1453, this fortress played a significant role in the Siege and Fall of Constantinople.

    1. It is, indeed! That is a photograph of Γ‡Δ±rağan Palace; it symbolizes the rise and fall of the Ottoman Empire. It’s known today as Hotel Kempinski. Thanks for asking; I’ve updated it in the post as well! ^_^

  1. We did that boat ride and it was incredible! We spent 2 weeks in Istanbul and I feel like it wasn’t enough. I am sure I left my heart there and I long to go back. The culture, history, the people, the food, the atmosphere is amazing!
