  • Think of a mansion in the sky and the sea, quiet, calm, a place worth visiting. A place where I've gone twice before and the entrance fee is very small. To do this, just go to Florya. Especially if you go to the aquarium in İstanbul, necessarily should. Because life culture, value, beauty, simplicity and will add special precious moments in the past.

  • Very affordable. A mansion on the sea. When you enter in a guide. Red White & blue mansion he had three corners, but I don't know if it still is ayaktamı. If your children I would recommend that you see if you have come to the aquarium in İstanbul. It is within walking distance. The mansion in the town when it comes to the use of the sea kiosk Florya-boat, then a lot of kick-back of spoons and kitchen tools, the town of Spiritual girl's profile is written in Dutch. I think I suggest you come look.
