Beykoz is a district of Istanbul, in the Asian part of the city, famous for the manufacture of glass. The city is dedicating a museum to this ancient tradition, which will open in 2020 and will present valuable glass works that trace the history of the Ottoman Empire and the new republic. Much of the exhibits come from the beautiful Dolmabahçe palace in Istanbul.
