It was truly a wonderful trip seeing the sights along the strait of Bosphorus. You can see woodlands, parks and palaces during the Ottoman period when cruising this strait. The Rumeli fortress is also visible from the boat. After that cruise we proceeded inside the Dolmabahçe Palace, a very stunning palace especially its interior. Sad to say, taking images inside the palace is not allowed.
Here are some snapshots I took during our cruise.
Passing-by at Dolmabahçe Palace, an amazing architecture both inside and out. We also had a tour inside this palace.
