The windows on the top floor were so dirty that nothing could be seen from there. And we paid 27 Turkish lira for nothing. At the information when I tried to claim my money back, the lady there didn't even speak English.....

This is a must see in Istanbul. The view from the observatory is stunning as only then you can really see the greatness of the city. They offer a 4D tour of Istanbul, there is a restaurant and a bar.

Amazing thing to try, I paid around 36 TL (~10$) for the lift ride to the terrace and the sky ride. The view is astonishing, and the weather was clear and a bit chilly. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Istanbul.
