Swimming Pool

At the centre of Mardan Palace is a landscaped outdoor swimming pool - an enormous oasis surrounded by a water street, in which glides the Sultan’s Golden Horn Gondola. Sunk deep within the swimming pool is a 350,000 gallon fish tank, and bridging it all is the elegant Da Vinci Bridge - originally design by Leonardo Da Vinci in the 15th century to span the Bosphorous - finally built here for the first time.
