Come See Turkey, Day 3: Topkapİ Palace
In the middle of day three of my Come See Turkey trip, we visited the Topkapi Palace. When the Ottomans conquered the city 500 years ago, they rebuilt the ruined Roman imperial palace and administration complex into what would eventually become called Topkap or Cannon Gate. Though renovated over the centuries, much of the original complex remains. And to my delight, they grow many, many tulips.
