  • It's open air. No tickets needed. Around are many museums and city views. Definitely a place to visit
  • Absolutely one of my favourite places to visit in Turkey. A must visit during the day and at night.
  • There is a story behind this beautiful Fish lake. Very peaceful place with a huge pool of fish, you can feed them. You have to see and feel it. June is already hot for a travel.

  • very crowded. parking a car is unrealistic somewhere. I felt very unsafe there:( At the time of the visit, there were no fish in the lake.
