What makes this place special is the amazing location , and the history behind the fortress .
The fortress was built in 3-4 months only !!! By Muhammed Al Fateh , he even shared his soldiers building the fortress to share them up .
The fortess is large and huge , very nicely built .
The view is very nice .
Some points in the fortress might not be friendly to acrophobic people

Great view over the Bosphorus! You can visit 2 of the towers. Be prepared with comfy shoes. The price is 10 turkish lira. The area around is very nice. It does take a long time to visit.

Fantastic view of the fortress by water. This wall and fortress was built before the siege of Constantinople in the mid fifteenth century
