Buyuk Valide Han Dome
Observation Deck in Istanbul, Turkey
The building is an old Ottoman inn that accommodated traveling merchants over 350 years ago, and it also stored the Oriental and European wares from the wooden ships moored in the Golden Horn. The han is hidden away in the bustling backstreets of the Spice Bazaar, and more recently it was featured in the montage of locations in the 007 movie Skyfall.
