Yildiz Park, Istanbul

#9 of 67 in Parks in Istanbul
Meander through one of Istanbul's largest public parks at Yildiz Park, a historical site that was once part of the imperial garden of Yildiz Palace. Today, the green lawns host exotic flowers and old vegetation like oak, magnolia, and Judas trees. Walk, jog, or skate the paved pathways to a panoramic viewpoint of the Bosphorus, or have a picnic in the Cadir or Malta pavilions. Despite the popular trails, the large forest makes it easy to escape the crowds. Use our Istanbul trip builder app to add Yildiz Park and other attractions to your Istanbul vacation plans.

  • Highly recommend this park for a walk. Beautiful nature, unusual landscapes, bridges, River-proteins-birds. It's cool.

  • All, absolutely all museums and a Palace on the restoration. And no one site about this not writes. Go anywhere it is impossible. Go to the Palace too impossible, and he has his own separate Park. Even from afar, nothing sfotografiruesh! Why no one site says? Riddle! The park entrance is. Even 2. Last year's restoration of the 80 90 per cent can complete. Good impression, but flowers and Greens not yet blossomed. Emirgan is similar to Yildiz, but more. Maltese Pavilion and Chater operate as cafes. There is another Café, nearby, and another at the bottom. Top looks depressive, although the place cool and customers there are.

  • There was a time when famous places of hunting, as an oasis in the middle of the Besiktas Savior today. If you intend to get the slope Ciragan Caddesi and proceed to the Yıldız Palace. Under centuries-old trees, you might encounter a squirrel high while walking.

  • This is a nice park to walk around. It has lots of trees and places to picnic as well as a stream flowing down the centre with a lake and cascades. Towards the rear of the park is a very nice cafe located in a small mansion. It has great views and catches the sun nicely. There are guards who patrol the park presumably for security. It is well worth a visit. He one down side is that there seems to be only one entrance so you have to get down to the seaside road to get in.
  • A great place for photoshooting. It's a great family park as there's plenty of space for people, it's so calm, clean and full of vegetation. I personally loved the bridge that people can use as a trampoline whilst gazing at the awesome mini pond they made, though l have to say their toilets are too far away from the centre of the park for me to say it's 5 star
  • A perfect place to escape from the city crowd! Well recommended for kids too as there are many outdoor playgrounds. Better to enter from the upper entrance.
  • Unfortunately, one of the few city parks left in Istanbul, you can walk along the greenery. Inside the park, there is Malta Köşkü, where one can have self-service buffet breakfast
  • Ask the community Yıldız Park is a historical, urban park in Beşiktaş district of Istanbul, Turkey. It is one of the largest public parks in Istanbul. The park is located in Yıldız quarter between the palaces of Yıldız and Çırağan
