I've seen inside this palace and it is one of the most magnificent in the whole world
Dolmabahçe Palace, the beating heart of the 19th Century Ottoman Empire, was all that and much more! A seat of Ottoman power from 1856 to 1922, the palace was handed to the nation of the newly created Republic of Turkey, a year later. It became the summer palace for Turkey's creator and first president Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. He also died here on November 10, 1938.
