  • Even though I have been to Istanbul for countless times because it is the city I love most of all, I had only passed by Tophane-i amire by car or bus. That had been a great mistake! Last week friends ...  more »
  • This building in the Ottoman era was an arms depot. Even before it was a foundry for cannons, commissioned by Suleiman the Magnificent for the preparation of his campaigns of conquest. However, the building we can now see is the one built by Sultan Selim III in 1803 with the aim of modernising the Ottoman army. In even more recent times it was a building with military destination. The complex has remained unused for decades, but has been recently restored to become the venue for exhibitions and art exhibitions. Two of Turkish artists are currently underway. All in all, the building lends itself well to this kind of destination. Even for those who are not interested in the works exhibited, almost always of modern and contemporary authors, it is still worthwhile to make a detour to see the building inside. It is located on the hill of Cihangir in the southerly point towards the Bosphorus. The construction is rectangular and has eight domes.

  • The exhibition and the field exhibited are a great fit, both of them pulling you in. You're looking at a lot of pictures. Because the paintings are great. He stands with all the greatness.

  • Zeytinburnu Mayor Mr. Murat Aydın's "testimony to An" photo exhibition can be visited free of charge from 03 February to 27 February 2018. Tophane-I Amire Culture and Art Center is known as "Metopon" before the conquest of Istanbul, and in the Ottoman period "Tophane" in the neighborhood, the construction of top-casting facilities was initiated by Fatih Sultan Mehmet. The construction of the Tophane district and other military structures along with the ball casting facilities should be interpreted as parts of a design project that has been consciously applied over time. This design process, starting from the place of choice, has mattered over time and led to the formation of a military and industrial functional neighbourhood with other structures. From these structures to the present day, the construction of the two-ball casting building on the slope was dated to 1851 and the structure known as "Tophane Pavilion" remained. This exhibition and Art Center, which is in the use of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, is located in Tophane District, a collection of historic buildings with antiquations. This museum is very easy to reach and can be reached by tram to the Tophane stop.
