Hello, I am Serhat Engul, an Istanbulite who has been a licensed tour guide in Istanbul for about 20 years. As an insider, I share with you the most up-to-date information about historical monuments and museums in Istanbul on this site.
About Istanbul Stories
Istanbul Stories contains information about ticket prices and visiting hours of the most prominent museums in the city. Since this information changes frequently, I update these articles every month.
In addition, you can also find information about the most interesting activities in the city, such as Whirling Dervishes show, Bosphorus cruise, Turkish baths and theme parks.
Current Information on Restorations
Since the historical monuments in Istanbul are hundreds of years old, there are ongoing restorations inside them. For this reason, some parts of the buildings may be closed during the year due to various renovation works.
In addition, visiting hours of mosques change several times throughout the year due to prayer times varying depending on the length of the day. On the other hand, museums have different entrance hours in summer and winter seasons.
As a professional tour guide, I know very well that this information about the visitation status of mosques and museums is very important for those planning a visit. And outdated articles, no matter how detailed, are of no use in this regard.
While writing the articles on this site, I aimed to produce as few articles as possible but to keep them constantly updated. In this way, I can keep the 15 articles on this site constantly updated.
