  • About 30kms from Istanbul, this Polish village is a nice little drive away from the city for a peaceful wooded atmosphere where you can enjoy picnics, barbecues or have a meal at the many cafes...  more »

  • Wonderful place for the family and the best petting zoo I have ever been to.
  • Much more better than Istanbul zoo itself
  • We had a great time, different kinds of animals, lush nature, natural... Of course, it can be made more groomed, the dishes are improved, the food is served at a remote point is expensive. 2 Pancakes 35 TL. Admission Adult 50 TL, 0-1 years free of charge... The parking lot is large, I recommend you leave early. No food, no drinks.

  • Admission is for adults 50 TL, 25 TL for children older than 2, there are animals inside but there is no expectation too much, there is also limited dining facilities and those who are very expensive.

  • After the comments we read, our expectations were very low; Maybe that's why we were amazed at the size and diversity of the visit. Of course, it's not a Schönbrunn Zoo, but it's not small enough to criticize the 50-pound entry price. The lack of sufficient orientation is a weakness, and the lack of map/sketch-like material in the entrance is certainly incomplete. That's probably why many visitors leave before they can explore the entire zoo (for example, we discovered by chance the so-called tropical room in the accommodation area). There are also inadequacies and shortcomings in the information signs. The fact that almost all non-hazardous animals are housed either in free circulation or in sections where visitors can enter their habitat makes the visit pleasant. The only negativity we saw in this sense was the monkey, which was held tied to a pole in front of the restaurant section; it certainly doesn't suit the general look. Similarly, it is repulsive to see signs such as dog farms where "puppy dog is sold". Nevertheless, it is only because of this zoo that you can reach Polonezköy; you can easily spend a day here.
