Beautiful Palaces and Houses on the Bosphorus

In my last post, I had mentioned the Topkapı Palace gradually lost its importance as the sultans preferred to spend more time in their new palaces along the Bosphorus. Well, here are some worth leaving a palace for.

Küçüksu Palace. Fun fact: This palace appeared in the James Bond film "The World Is Not Enough" as the mansion of a woman in Baku.
