Wood postcard of Topkapi Palace, Istanbul

Topkapi is the largest and oldest palace in the world to survive to our day. In 1924 it was turned into a museum at Atatürk's request. Situated on the acropolis, the site of the first settlement in Istanbul, it commands an impressive view of the Golden Horn, the Bosphorus and the Sea of Marmara. The palace is a complex surrounded by 5 km of walls and occupies an area of 700,000 sq. m at the tip of the historical peninsula.

* Thank you to Epigonion's comment ~~ His name is Atatürk not Atatiirk.
