Pera Palas, Istanbul

Designed by the French architect Alexander Vallaury, also the architect of Union Française And the Ottoman Bank was begun in May 1881; the hotel was opened in October 1891. It is said that Sultan Abdülhamit attended the opening ceremony. The "Compagnie Internationale dés Wagons et des Grands Express Européens" had built the hotel for the use of passengers coming from Paris to Istanbul. This is why the symbols of the Pera palas and the orient express are the same.

From the time of its opening until today, Pera palas had been frequented by well-known and highly-placed figures in the political world; such as Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Ismet Inönü, Celal Bayar, Adnan Menderes, Fahri Korutürk, Refik Koraltan, King Zogo of Albania, Shah Rıza Pehlevi of Iran, King Edward V111 of England , King Ferdinand of Bulgaria, King Carol of Romania, president Tito of Yugoslavia and Jacqueline Kennedy. The long list of political guests includes Giscard d’Estaing, Von Papen, Mata Hari Cicero .The list also includes innumerable names from the world of culture and art such as Agatha Christie, Yehudi Menuhin, Marie Bell .

Maiden's Tower

Built on the rocks of the asian shore at the mouth of the Bosphorus Strait, the 30m-high Landers Tower was first constructed as a watch tower. In Turkey it is called Kiz Kulesi (Girl's Tower). Todey you can find in it a 5 star restaurant and a bar.

My favourite church in Istanbul

St. Anton Church

St. Anton Church was built by the architects Mongeri and Eduardo de Nari in 1913 in Istanbul. It's still one of the biggest churches in Turkey. Though the church was built in neo-classic-style, it's precisley Venetian style. It was the first time in in 1976 when christians prayed in Turkish language.
