The Princess Islands are a combination of nine islands off the Asian coast of Istanbul, in the Sea of Marmara.
The name of the islands comes from the Byzantine period when royal princes and empresses were exiled there. With the introduction of steamboats during the late Ottoman period around the 19th century, these islands became popular resorts for the rich people who built their wooden houses. Jewish, Greek, and Armenian communities were a large part of the inhabitants here. Today, the islands are popular tourist destinations for daily excursions, especially in the summertime. There are many monasteries and historic buildings on the islands, besides 19th-century Victorian style old wooden mansions.
Heybeliada, the second largest island in the archipelago, was known as Khalkitis or chalky during the Byzantine period and had many copper mines which are shut down today. There are some interesting buildings on the island such as the Naval Academy founded in 1773 and the Greek Orthodox High School. The High school is a large building up on the northern hill and in the middle of pine trees, but its closed today.It is now possible to cruise the islands with electric carriages instead of horse carriages.
