Tent detail

view map

One great treat of this museum are tents that housed the sultan and the higher echelons when in the field. They are in good condition after hundreds of years, and one should imagine a whole "city" of them, covering the fields outside, to name a famous example of a campagin that went wrong, Vienna. Or outside Istanbul in 1453, when for some days it was still Constantinople.
