The lavish and resplendent Dolmabahçe Palace demonstrates the reasonable impact of European embellishment and design on the Ottoman Empire in the nineteenth century. Built by Sultan Abdülmecid I in 1854, it replaced Topkap? Palace as the main residence of the sultans.
The formal green patio nurseries are punctuated with wellsprings, blossoming bloom beds, fancy bowls, and keeping in mind that inside the sheer quality and grandeur of the Turkish Renaissance style is amazing. The insides blend Rococo, Baroque, Neoclassical and Ottoman components, with mammoth precious stone light fixtures, liberal utilization of gold, French-style furniture, and stunning frescoed roofs.
