Rumelihisari, Istanbul Reviews

  • Fantastic place, well worth a visit. Since it is further away from all the other locations of historical importance in Istanbul, many tourists give this location a miss.Those who choose to come here will not be disappointed because it feels empty and pretty much yours for the day. Please know that while you are free to walk around the gardens and walk up some of the stairs to a higher vantage point, you are not allowed inside or on top if any of the remaining towers. Still the feel of the place is amazing and you can spend some time here walking around and looking at the view.

  • Beautiful and absolutely worth the visit, but keep in mind that all the interiors are closed - you can only visit the garden, absolutely no tower interiors or walk on top of the walls for their breathtaking views. I had the luck to go inside a tower because it was extraordinarily open for twenty minutes by a guardian who had to carry out a repair inside (and forgot the door open) - it's an incredible experience. Shame it was only by chance. In our rush, we have glimpsed at an abandoned exhibition inside the tower: once beautiful in-scale models of Istanbul, of the castle, of the Bosphorus, with historical explanations, now covered by dust and damaged. This is because of the usual Turkish negligence for their heritage: the last full restoration is from 1952. To balance, they have recently spent good money to rebuild a Mosque in the centre of the castle (yes, you read it right). There was a Mosque in the original castle (in the same spot, over the cistern), but it was destroyed over the centuries and, in the 1952 restoration, it was decided transform its spot in a stage and the surrounding area in an open air theatre (thanks, secular Atatürk). Introduce Erdoğan: instead of investing in repairing and reopening the towers and walls, now the theatre stage has a new Mosque on it, which defeats the use of the 1952 theatre stone seats that have been left all around. Pure madness. Therefore, you can only walk in the internal courtyard, but should you have a need of the soul, you are readily served a Mosque. Still, the beauty of the site and its surroundings are well worth a visit, and it's a short distance from Istanbul (by bus, about 25 min from Dolmabahçe Palace).

  • Lovely place at the bank of the sea. Spectacular architecture and a historic place. Must go for beautiful views

  • 10TL entrance fee and museum pass works there. Once you climb to the top you are rewarded with a great view of the Bosphorus and Fatih Sultan Mehmet bridge. We spent about 45mins there. We did it as part of our Bosphorus cruise you can also do it if you are exploring the nearby Bebek area.

  • If you like history, do not think, just get in. It only cost 10Liras which makes around $2 or $2,5 (as June 2018). Enjoy it..
