Istanbul, capital of the great Ottoman Empire, enjoyed more than four centuries of imperial patronage, which created one of the most famous skylines in the world. Its mosques and palaces are complemented by exquisite tile decoration, fine woodwork and luxurious furnishings. The Topkapi Palace, home to the sultans and their families, remains a magnificent treasure house and, together with the Blue Mosque and Aghia Sophia, this monument represents a fusion of cultures where East meets West.
