#19 of 190 in Shopping in Istanbul
One of Turkey's tallest buildings, Istanbul Sapphire offers unbeatable views of the city's European section. Situated in the central business district, the skyscraper rises 54 floors above ground and boasts special features designed to absorb sunshine and protect the interior from external noise and harsh weather conditions. More than just a marvel of modern engineering, the building draws tourists with its shopping mall, restaurants, indoor golf course, vertical gardens, swimming pools, and observation deck, which provides a 360-degree view of the city. The 43rd floor houses a 4-D movie experience, simulating a helicopter flight over the city. Find out how to plan Istanbul trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • Really unreal, breathtaking views of Istanbul. It is best to go after sunset, night city-enchanting spectacle and divorces on Windows not visible:) We took the tickets to the observation deck + sky ride. I can't say that this is the best 4 d cinema. But it is unusual, interesting, entertaining and dynamic way.

  • Climbed on the roof of the highest building in mid-February 2018 year. The day was sunny, and the lucky can see the city from a height of more than 200 t-m. .. Excellent very beautiful city! Visited on excursion in 4 d session, which left a very strong impression ... Really enjoyed ... Still want to come back here!

  • Been going there for a while now. Not that impressed. With exceptions, many shops here hire very rude or unhelpful ppl. Carrefour with their young male cashier's giving you attitude when you ask for a plastic bag, the coffee shops that make comments about your appearance in Turkish and think you don't understand. The security that look at you look you don't belong there. The takeaway shops like burger king that serves locals before you. It's not a place I prefer to go to. The cinema is good though.
  • Breathtaking view on the 55th floor.. i recommend everyone to try it.. especially the 4D skyride experience.
  • Istanbul Sapphire is an amazing place, it’s so beautiful and who climbs to the 53 floor can see all istanbul. 🤩🤩
  • A must see in town. If you want to see the city from birds-eye view, the terrace of the building can be used as an observation terrace, it's definitely a must see.
  • It is very pity and dissapponting to see inside designed as chinese cheap malls. Also roof is not tidy, nor properly designed. Contrary to spectucular view for Istanbul, orginising is not ok for this building. It must be redecorated and reorginised completely. 4D simulator room was very dirty. We waited too long to go up and enter into the 4D room.
