What you see on the Cruise:
Topkapi Palace, Europe You will see from the sea side the Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia.
Maiden’s Tower, mid Bosphorus A 12th-century Byzantine fortress occupied the tiny islet where the 18th-century Kız Kulesi (also called Leander’s Tower) now stands. A tower here may have served as a customs post. Featured in the James Bond movie From Russia With Love, the tower now houses a restaurant.
Üsküdar, Asia The largest Asian district, directly across the Bosphorus. Dolmabahce Palace, Europe The façade of this great Ottoman palace (1853) is nearly a quarter of a mile (400 meters) long. Ciragan Palace, Europe Finished in 1874, the marble palace of Ciragan (CHEE-rah-AHN) has a tragic history.
