About
Minaturk is just what it sounds like: a mini version of treasures found in Turkey. The park contains 105 models done in 1/25th scale, about half of them from Istanbul and the rest from Anatolia and the Ottoman territories outside of Turkey.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.

It is a great little park. I was expecting it to be larger as per the descriprions, but really it does have most of Turkey’s monuments in miniature. This is how you manage to get a picture of the entire Hagia Sophia 😊

I absolutely loved this place, it’s not something that’s wildly advertised as a place to visit when in Istanbul but it’s well worth the visit.

You can take a public bus from taksim
To get here but there are several bus stops in taksim it can be hard to find. The bus will drop you outside miniturk just a few minutes walk away.

Very fun activity with or without kids, me and my partner went and we spent about 3 hours in here as we had lunch in the cafeteria which has fantastic prices unlike many tourist attractions who hike up food prices.

There is the main cafe then a ice cream shop and a juicing shop so you can always find what you need. They also have the costume dress up shop, a helicopter stimulator for extra cost of course. A few little games along the way you can pay a few TL for.

It’s really nice to be able to see all the attractions across Turkey in mini versions and it’s a place I highly recommend.

Absolutely loved this place! Wife and I paid 20 liras each for a ticket and spent about an hour.

It soooo cool, you could really see the details of all the models built here. All these miniature models are key monuments around Turkey, and it really gives a lot of information of when and why they were built. I was shocked at the beauty of some of these models, really stunning.

For me this place should be in the top 10 things to do in Istanbul, if you get time do visit this place guys! I think in total there was in excess of 80 miniature models.

Nice place to visit where you can see brief about all major activities and sightseeing in Turkey and some other cities around the world.
Need little improvement in term of coffee shops and restaurants.

What a great way to spend a few hours. Cost to get in was 15tl. Miniaturk is a large park of miniature historic and non historic attractions over Turkey. All exhibits have a plaque in front of them explaining what the exhibit is along with a map of Turkey showing the city where the original is located. There is a children’s park with activities for them. They have an excellent website with lots of information as well you can download an app on iTunes or google. Excellently done. We are staying at the Ramada Golden Horn about a 20min walk.

It is very nice place that u will enjoy in it for around 1.5 to 2 hours

It is near the center of istanbul

Tickets are 15 LT

It has all services and restaurent and gift shop

The tiny reflectiona that u will see are talking about whole Turkey with valuable info about it

The only thing comparing to mini holland is that there is no automatice movement of the train, boats and air planes
