#24 of 1,402 in Things to do in Istanbul
Walk between the trimmed lawns of Miniaturk dotted with more than 100 miniature models of Turkey's great buildings, such as Hagia Sophia, the mausoleum at Halicarnassus, and the Atatürk international airport. As one of the world's largest miniature parks, this open-air site features architectural structures from Istanbul, Anatolia, and even from the Ottoman territories that are no longer part of Turkey. See the ancient city of Ephesus, the bridge over the Bosporus, the Suleymaniye mosque, fairy chimneys, and Mount Nemrut, all scaled down to 1/25 of their original size. A miniature train passes through the paths. Amenities include a cafe, a shop, and a cinema showing a 3-D film about Istanbul.

  • One of best place and must see place. Almost all the mini models of attractions of Turkey was there. Many other things like remote control boats and ships for 1 TL. Kids really enjoyed. And tickets are 17TL. Very interesting. Public transport I think 36 and 26. A story telling tree and a maze. Chess game. Many things
  • Amazing, musr see dedicate enough time to enjoy it. The cafe there has very reasonable prices for good food quality. Remember to enjoy the helicopter 3D simulator which will give you views of Istanbul and also of Turkey in general. It is paid separately once you are in. Also there is a miniature train which you can ride, I think it costs 2TL per person. Lots of fun for the kids. Also the gift shop is great with very reasonable prices.
