Istanbul Topkapi Palace and Gülhane Park

It's time for dancing blogging it's the weekend (♫ ♫ ♫). It's time for day-dreaming as well. 
True, we will never be royals (♫ ♫ ♫), but we can always walk through the alleys of a palace, for example, Topkapi Palace, and explore the various rooms, courtyards and beautiful gardens within the palace walls. If you visit Topkapi Palace you can experience the royal lifestyle of the Ottoman sultans.
As you can see in the pictures below, even the cats have an aristocratic look here.
The palace, now a museum, is a major tourist attraction and contains important holy relics of the Muslim world. Right next to Topkapi Palace, a peaceful oasis can be found.

Gülhane Park, that was once served as the grounds of Topkapi Palace, accessed only by the royal court, is now a public park where you can take a break and smell the roses tulips.
For me, these are two absolutely must see places in Istanbul. Hope you enjoy these pictures and your weekend. Till next time.
