Perhaps the most sought-after wedding venue in Turkey, the history of Ciragan Palace Kempinski dates back 150 years to the Ottoman Empire.

Sure to impress, if you are looking for a wedding or party venue that offers ultimate exclusivity and luxury, Kempinski’s Ciragan Palace, situated on the edge of the Bosphorus strait in Istanbul is the perfect choice. Let our luxury wedding planners and party planners orchestrate the most enchanting celebration for your special day.
