Emirgan Park, Istanbul

4.6
#3 of 32 in Parks in Istanbul
Walk through Emirgan Park, one of the largest public parks in the city, or stop for a traditional Ottoman meal. Nestled in an urban setting, this oasis stretches over hills and among sparkling lakes. Its collection of plants includes more than 120 species, such as Himalayan cedar, Norway spruce, and Colorado white fir. Its lengthy jogging tracks and picnic tables make it a popular destination among the locals and it hosts annual international tulip festivals. Here you'll also see a traditional Ottoman house, a 19th-century wooden mansion, and a neoclassical-style restaurant. Emirgan Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Istanbul Edition.

  • Beautiful park for family....at the top of the park there is a cafeteria with reasonable prices.. It's good to enter the park from the top side and walk through the park until the bottom...
  • It's an amazing place during Tulips festival. But you have to know about traffic on the way to. It takes approximately 2 hours to get to and same time to get out to the closest tram station.
  • It is an amazing garden . It is a piece of art in the tulip festival month April, no one must cancel it from the April's schedule.
  • In central restaurant they ask me 25$ for filling my kettle with hot water for making tea. I found other place for asking hot water until I found for 5$.
  • It's wonderful place to visit specially in 4th month.

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
