Ciragan Palace

Ciragan Palace

In the 17th century, the location of Ciragan, situated between Beşiktaş and Ortakoy today, was known as the "Kazancioglu Gardens." In the 18th century, the seaside palaces and gardens that adorned the shores of Besiktas were considered significant symbols of the 'Tulip and Music Love' era, known as the Tulip Period. This period was not only a time of entertainment but also a cultural brilliance. Sultan III. Ahmed organized torchlight festivals called Ciragan Festivals in this location. Due to these events, the area began to be referred to as 'Ciragan,' meaning 'light' in Persian.

Rumelian Fortress

Conceived and built between 1451 and 1452 CE on the orders of Sultan Mehmed II, the complex was commissioned in preparation for a planned Ottoman siege on the then-Byzantine city of Constantinople with the goal of cutting off maritime military and logistical relief that could potentially come to the Byzantines' aid by way of the Bosphorus Strait, hence the fortress's alternative name, "Boğazkesen", i.e. "Strait-cutter" Castle.
