Court Life
‘The Bosphorus palaces became the new dynastic residences.’
In the middle of the 19th century, under Western influence, the Ottoman sultans moved to Dolmabahçe Palace, then to Yıldız Palace, and spent their summers in Beylerbeyi Palace. All were built along the Bosphorus in the Western style. The Bosphorus palaces became the new dynastic residences and centres for official ceremonies and receptions.
