Maritime Museum

The Maritime Museum founded in 1897, is one of the most entertaining in Istanbul and largest of its kind in Turkey containing over 20,000 items. Although it has moved many times throughout its history it has been in its current location since 1961. The collection is split between two buildings; the one facing the water houses the impressively adorned Imperial barges which were used to ferry the Ottoman sultans along the Bosphorus and the largest one, dating from 1648, required 144 oarsmen to row it; the second is dedicated to the maritime history of the Ottoman Empire and Turkish Republic with a vast collection of weaponry, model ships, engravings and paintings, stamps, seals, navigational equipment, lights and clocks and items of Ataturk's private yacht all on display.

Shisha or Nargile Cafes

Tophane is known as the capital for shisha or Nargile houses. If you like to try shisha, we would advice you to try one of these.
