A view of Rumelian Fortress and Bosphorus under the snow from Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge in winter (Turkish: Kışın Fatih Sultan Mehmet Köprüsü'nden karlar altında Rumelihisarı ve Boğaziçi'nin bir görüntüsü). There are three towers in the Fortress. The three great towers were named after three of Sultan Mehmed II's (Fatih Sultan Mehmet) viziers, Sadrazam Çandarlı Halil Pasha, who built the big tower next to the gate, Zağanos Pasha, who built the south tower, and Saruca Pasha, who built the north tower.

In 1953, on the orders of President Celal Bayar, the inhabitants were relocated and extensive restoration work began on 16 May 1955, which lasted until 29 May 1958. Since 1960 Rumelihisarı (Rumelian Fortress or Rumelian Castle) has been a museum and an open-air theater for various concerts at festivals during the summer months. The Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge which spans the Bosphorus is located close to the fortress, to the north.
