opening hours

The foreign tourists are often displaced by the times and days of closure of the main attractions of Istanbul. It is hard to find complete information about opening hours, and also it is difficult to find their way among the religious holidays which dates change every year. For this reason, your morning visit plans may fail after discovering that the place is actually closed that day. You lose your time and more importantly you lose the opportunity to visit the place.
