"Maiden's Tower Istanbul Turkey River"
Location: Istanbul, Turkey
This iconic landmark in Istanbul is called the Maiden’s Tower and is rich historic events dating back to the fourth century. The Maiden’s Tower served multiple purposes throughout the centuries, including a merchantman tax collection center, a defense tower, and a lighthouse. During the 1830 cholera epidemic, it was transformed into a quarantine hospital and radio station. In 1964, the building was given over to the Ministry of Defence and then to the Maritime Enterprises 18 years later. Following a number of renovations, today the tower is a visitor attraction, with a ground-floor restaurant and excellent views. There’s also a museum with free admission.
