Minaturk is just what it sounds like: a mini version of treasures found in Turkey. The park contains 105 models done in 1/25th scale, about half of them from Istanbul and the rest from Anatolia and the Ottoman territories outside of Turkey.

It takes two hours to know more about turkey, the Great Ottoman Empire, a little bit about the Greeks, Constantinople and later during Ataturk It gives a good idea about the big cities including Bursa, Quoya Antalya, Izmir, Mardin, etc.

Very well thought,organized and built for locals,Turks and the tourists. Make visiting all the important sights in Turkey (their replicas) possible in one day. You may have an overall idea of Turkey. Don't go back before visiting here.

We had so much fun here! There is a lot to look at as you wonder around the paths. If you have visited some of the locations before, its a great opportunity to compare them in size and really see the differences in style and architecture. I've seen a number of the monuments that are shown in real-life and it... More

If you're in istanbul for just a few days, and don't have time to visit other regions of Turkey, then this is a good place to visit. Here you'll see mini versions of all the major sights and attractions of Turkey. There's the Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, various other famous mosques and tombs, the rock formations of Capadoccia, etc... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
