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.

  • This place is impressive. You'll see all sorts of buildings but in their mini-est forms. The buildings are not only from Istanbul but from all over Turkey. So you can experience a little bit of the entire country by going to this fantastic place.
  • It's an amazing place with miniature models of historic buildings and landmarks. It is one of the world's largest miniature parks with its 15,000 m2 model area. The park contains 122 models in 1:25 scale; it covers a total area of 60,000 square meters.
  • curious stop since we got free entrance together with 2 days hop on hop off big bus tour. pleasant park of miniatures from buildings around the country. worth the one hour stop. there are restaurants and food kiosk inside if you come during meal time
  • Wonderful place for bothe adults and children. Every year improving and expanding with new set of miniatures, activities and amenities. Must see place. Though during high season go early otherwise gets very crowded.
  • I heard of this place and thought, it is just going to be a small model park of Turkey so what, but then when we went there, the models were huge and astounding. There were models of huge mosques and train tracks running through each one with water around those. They were the smaller or miniature versions of life size giant monuments of Turkey. There was the Blue Mosque, bridges, and the best one The international airport of Turkey with huge planes going around. There were also some being constructed and a bridge you could cross to see the whole view of the mini land. There is a helicopter simulator, maze, chess game and restaurant and play land too. It is breathtaking and awesome to take pictures with.
