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.

  • Be sure to visit the observation deck on the top of the tower. Little to say takes your breath away, from here you can see the whole city and the Bosphorus. Podgadajte the time of the visit to sunset, and your experience increase many times.

  • This is a fantastic view of the whole of Istanbul. Can see all the way past the airport one way, to the Asian side in the other direction and also the beautiful princes island. The view is tremendous....  read more »
  • Istanbul sapphire is a complex that in addition of shopping you can have view 360 from istanbul and whole of the city is clear from above...there is a 4D cinema that really has worth to see... 
  • Not crowded, quite satisfying but needs more social palce to hang out. If you need some time and space to relax, it is a good place otherwise look for another alternative such as Cevahir
  • This place has a mall, Observatory at the very top of the building, wax museum, a play center for young adults, a decent food court, and an residence. This place basically does it all. The view from the observatory at the top is breathtaking I mean you can see all of Istanbul the Seven Hills, the Bosphorus sea, get a good vantage point of airplanes flying above taking the good air can just take some breathtaking photos. Once you've had enough of the view which I don't think can happen soon, you should go inside and get a little bite to eat or do the 4 D simulation ride that's actually pretty fun or get a picture with a nice background. Like I said the Istanbul Sapphire has a lot of things to do, after taking in the beautiful view you can go downstairs via the fastest elevator ever been in and shop shop shop all you want in what turns out to be actually not a bad mall at all!
  • This place screwed up in the beginning, by not having a cinema. Common sense would dictate to make up for this putting a cinema in 3 years later is quite late. - Perhaps a theatre or some kidn of higfhly affordable thing could be available.
  • The highest building in Istanbul! On the roof of Sapphire Tower you can visit a special viewing point - Seyir Terasi - 360* panorama of Istanbul! The view is amazing!!!
  • Not a great shopping mall. Good if you are after a mall food court / fast food and do indeed live near by (otherwise go somewhere nice / more interesting like istinye park mall or in levent). Has a famed pay to go to roof view.
