In the footsteps of the “Magnificent century”: what is definitely worth seeing in Istanbul

After the cult series was released, many immediately rushed to buy tickets for the next flights to Turkey to follow in the footsteps of Hürrem and see with their own eyes the places where the action of the picture unfolded and serious passions were boiling. Together with experts of the international tourist meta-search momondo.ru we decided to introduce you to the main attractions associated with the series, and immerse you in the era of the “Magnificent century”.
Turkish TV series “Magnificent century” conquered the audience with its exciting story, a story of passionate love of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent and his concubine Roxolana and stunning Oriental flavor. Although the series takes place in the 16th century, fans of the epic can easily plunge into its atmosphere — just take a plane ticket to Istanbul. For example, according to the tourist meta-search momondo.ru, direct flight to the largest city in Turkey from Moscow and back in may costs from 9,5 thousand rubles, and a double room in a 4 star hotel — from 999 rubles per night. Where to go in Istanbul in the footsteps of the heroes of the series?

Topkapi Palace
The series takes place in the main Palace of Istanbul — Topkapi. Today it is a Museum, which after the release of melodrama became even more popular among tourists: inside and at the entrance sold many Souvenirs with its symbols: jewelry “a La Roksolana”, bags, notebooks, dishes depicting the characters and historical books about the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent. The shooting itself, however, took place not here — for them were built special pavilions that mimic the Palace. However, fans of the series will see in the Museum familiar interiors, including the Sultan’s chambers and the famous harem, where intrigues and passions were boiling. Rooms and corridors of the Palace abound with Oriental luxury and diversity, and from the inner Park offers stunning views of the Bosphorus. Continue reading
