Dolmabahçe Palace is the largest palace in Turkey, built between 1843 and 1856 to replace the Topkapı Palace, which was considered to no longer be suitable for the Ottoman royal family. It was home to six Sultans between 1856 and 1924 when ownership transferred to the new Turkish Republic. It was used as a presidential palace by Ataturk, who also died there in 1938 after being treated for cirrhosis of the liver. Visitors can see the room in which he died, complete with all the original furniture, including a clock that was stopped at the moment of his passing.

From the mythical Argonauts to the Ottoman Navy, a number of seafarers are said to have anchored in Dolmabahçe Bay. After the bay was silted up, the site was overbuilt with the palace and garden from 1843 to be on a par with the European palaces of the 19th century, unlike the medieval Topkapi Palace. From 1856, the Ottoman sultan resided here in the Beşiktaş district.
Highlights in the Dolmabahce Palace are, in addition to Atatürk's deathbed, the staircase and chandeliers, as well as a piano made of crystal glass and the gate to the Bosphorus against the backdrop of the sea. In special cases, the Dolmabahçe Palace is still used today for representative purposes such as state receptions.
