  • Dolmabahce Palace harem section of gorucek the art exhibition of the way. If you received a free ticket if you are already a full 2 pounds discount. absolutely gorgeous works of art from the Ottoman-era emphasis on art available. with quite nice detail of each image whether headphones anlatılsa I think that it would be so much better. After his tour of the Selamlık of the Palace and Harem's picture gallery so I suggest at least 1 hour allocation. The first period of Turkish painters and draws attention of foreign House Painters pictures. Most of the pictures seen in history lessons at school in this museum are exhibited in its original version. Aivazovsky and Fausto Zonaro tables are very good. Though very few works of Osman Hamdi Bey and İbrahim calli.
