Edirne Gate, Edirne Kapı Quick Guide

The Edirne Kapı is literally the gate that leads to the city of Edirne. Although there is little visual evidence to illustrate the fact, you are actually standing at the highest point of Istanbul, some 78 metres above sea level at a gate that has been one of the main entry points into Istanbul since Byzantine times and was the door through which Mehmet the Conqueror officially entered the city on 29th May 1453 following the fall of Constantinople.
