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.

Fun with a local flair

There were very few tourists here. It was a good place for kids to play, especially with other little kids. Mine had a lot of fun.

Here you'll see mini versions of all the major sights and attractions of Turkey. There's the Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, various other famous mosques and tombs, the rock formations of Capadoccia, etc... More

We visited many special places in Turkey so we were at Miniaturk in order to find out where else to go... First of all it is not easy to reach this park, there are no indication plates. It is somewhere at the end of Golden Horn and the access road is a simple street. It can be very very crowded,... More

It's a very practical idea to have these mini sites in every country, you must visit Miniaturk at the beginning of your tour, and then you can decide where to head to next, knowing everything about your destination. It's a nice site and enjoyable for all ages. I enjoyed the details of every mini site, the 4D flight was interesting... More

It was one of the most intresting places I visited in Istanbul. When buying the tickets they asked our nationality and they gave us Persian tickets. the park was full of miniature models of historical places in Istanbul and there was a machinery in front of each one. by holding the ticket on that machinery, we could hear explanations in...

One of the best places that you can visit in Istanbul. You will have a general idea about the touristic places in all of Turkey. Also you can take a Marine taxi from Kabatas directly to Miniaturk and it will cost you only 5 Lira The entrance is 10 Lira only for one person

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
