#28 of 1,330 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.

  • This park is a very modern and top notch place. The models there are for all the well known places and historic places all over Turkey and especially Istanbul. The models are made in a very precise way reflecting all the real details to a scale if 1/25. I recommend people who are in love with art and architecture to visit this place.
  • Nice place, but getting to the place wasn't easy using public transportation. Also be careful, you could spend half a day or more there. Move fast and enjoy your time. After all it is better to see the real thing rather than seeing the small copy.
  • It has replicas of most of the famous places all around turkey. It is a big park and there are some places to eat and drink. There are some activities for kids. There is a shop with many interesting souvenirs. You can take many photos and have an idea of huge historical places all around Turkey.
  • Good shopping times that we spent there, I hope all markets deal with their customers such like this center. The prices are fair and acceptable, the CRM had been trained accurately, I just have one comment, which is the lighting conditions is not fine for view because they are using moon lighting regardless of sun lighting. Maybe when they mix between the both lighting it will be amazing shape of view. Good luck.
  • Nice place for a family to spend two hours or so viewing miniatures of most Turkey's attractions. I recommend to take the helicopter flight simulator the "combo" option. My kids enjoyed it so much.
