This palace was built in 1856 and the otoman emperors continued ruling the country from here. In the 19th century a lot of Western influence was present in the Ottoman Palace. So there is a striking taste of Baroque architecture in this building. Actually a mixture of European architectural trends of the time, this style came to be known as ‘’Turkish Rokoko’’. Stretching 600 meters along bosphorus, this magnificent building is where Ataturk the founder of the Turkish Republic died in 1938.
