#26 of 1,405 in Things to do in Istanbul
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.

  • One of best place and must see place. Almost all the mini models of attractions of Turkey was there. Many other things like remote control boats and ships for 1 TL. Kids really enjoyed. And tickets are 17TL. Very interesting. Public transport I think 36 and 26. A story telling tree and a maze. Chess game. Many things
  • Amazing, musr see dedicate enough time to enjoy it. The cafe there has very reasonable prices for good food quality. Remember to enjoy the helicopter 3D simulator which will give you views of Istanbul and also of Turkey in general. It is paid separately once you are in. Also there is a miniature train which you can ride, I think it costs 2TL per person. Lots of fun for the kids. Also the gift shop is great with very reasonable prices.
  • It's really great place and I'm sure it took big efforts to have such place. It is a must for the tourist to visit it, it will give a general idea about the historical places in Turkey. There is a nice museum inside, don't miss to enter it. I think you will need 4 - 5 hours for this place, it's suitable for a family and there is a kids play area.
  • Miniatürk is a huge park filled with amazing miniatures of so many historical places located in Turkey. They all look amazing, really detailed and well crafted. Entrance ticket is reasonable. Definitely would recommend especially for young kids.
  • A super tour and nice way to learn about Turkish monuments. Using the mobile app gives some interactivity to your tour. Taking the train isn't fun. There is restaurant and wc inside at many checkpoints of the tour some areas are closed. Fly ride and the pictures costume are funny to try.
