Aynalikavak Palace is famed for its tulips.

This picturesque building on the shore of the Golden Horn is a reminder that this now modern, urban area was for many centuries full of parks, gardens, meadows and streams, where Ottoman sultans and before them the Byzantines came for summer outings.

Built during the reign of Sultan Mehmet II, it was named for the mirrors that were gifted to Sultan Ahmet III by the Venetians.

Explore the interior with its opulent furniture, fine paintings and spectacular views, and take a turn about the gently sloping grounds, filled with trees from all over the world.

You'll find Aynalikavak Palace just after the shipyard at the Golden Horn.
