Dolmabahce Palace was built by Sultan Abdulmecid in 19th century. After Topkapi Palace was serving as the residence of Ottoman sultans for about 400 years, Sultan Abdulmecid moved and started to live at Dolmabahce Palace which is a beautiful mix of many European architectural styles.
Golden Horn was the ancient natural and secure harbour of Istanbul. Greek, Jewish, Armenian communities lived with Turkish people together along the shores of Golden Horn.
Pierre Loti Hill was named after a French naval officer and novelist who lived in Istanbul. Now, it is famous for its spectacular views over the Golden Horn and is home to a famous cafe.
Rumeli Fortress was built by Mehmet the Conqueror to cut off any food supply or weapons to Constantinople in 1452. The castle currently functions as a museum and open-air theater for various concerts at festivals.
