Dolmabahce Palace Istanbul
One of the rooms in Dolmabahce Palace where Ottoman Sultans lived once.
Dolmabahce Palace was the first European-style palace in Istanbul. It was built by Sultan Abdulmecid between 1842 and 1853, at a cost of five million Ottoman gold pounds, the equivalent of 35 tons of gold. Fourteen tons of gold in the form of gold leaf were used to gild the ceilings of the palace. The world's largest Bohemian crystal chandelier, a gift from Queen Victoria, hangs in the central hall. The chandelier has 750 lights and weighs 4.5 tons. Dolmabahce has the largest collection of Bohemian and Baccarat crystal chandeliers in the world, and one of the great staircases has bannisters of Baccarat crystal.
Dolmabahce PalaceThe site of Dolmabahce was originally a bay in the Bosphorus which was filled gradually during the 18th century to become an imperial garden, much appreciated by the Ottoman sultans; from this comes the name, dolma meaning 'filled' and bahce 'garden'). Various summer palaces were built here during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The palace that stands here today was built between 1842 and 1853 during the reign of Sultan Abdulmecid, on the site of the old coastal palace of Besiktas, by the Armenian-Turkish architects Garabet Amira Balyan and his son Nigogayos Balyan. The Sultans moved here, since the old Topkap? Palace lacked the modern luxuries that the Dolmabahce could provide.
The palace is composed of three parts; the Mabeyn-i Humayun (or Selaml?k, the quarters reserved for the men), Muayede Salonu (the ceremonial halls) and the Harem-i Humayun (the Harem, the apartments of the family of the Sultan). The palace has an area of 45,000 m? (11.2 acres), and contains 285 rooms, 46 halls, 6 baths (hamam) and 68 toilets. The famous Crystal Staircase has the shape of a double horseshoe and is built of Baccarat crystal, brass and mahogany. The palace includes a large number of Hereke palace carpets made by the Hereke Imperial Factory. Also featured are 150-year-old bearskin rugs originally presented to the Sultan as a gift by the Tsar of Russia.
The palace is managed by Milli Saraylar Daire Baskanl?g? (Directorate of National Palaces) responsible to the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. Dolmabahce Palace Museum is open to public on weekdays from 9:00 to 15:00, except Mondays and Thursdays.

KID IN ALADDIN'S PALACE - DVD Movie
There's more shtick than you can shake a stick at in this goofy sequel to the 1995 comedy A Kid in King Arthur's Court. Thomas Ian Nicholas returns as Calvin, a deceptively commonplace '90s teen whose pizza-delivery job gets him mixed up in an ancient quest to help Ali Baba save Aladdin--and all of Arabia--from the evil schemes of Aladdin's brother, Luxor. Just as Calvin relied on rollerblades and CD players to help him in the previous movie, his stash of contemporary gizmos gets him out of more than one jam when Luxor's henchmen come looking for him. There's a fair amount of F/X magic here--including the traditional opening of Ali Baba's hideaway at the command "open sesame"--but silliness is the real engine of this movie. (Ali Baba and his Forty Thieves? Try Ali and his Three Lamebrained Brothers.) Comic actor Taylor Negron is very funny as Aladdin's smart-aleck genie, stuck inside a lamp for a thousand years but hip enough to describe Luxor as "gone postal." --Tom Keogh
