Nothing can compare to mingle with nature alone, clean, solemn and it is a good place to rest after a long walk from the main district of Istanbul and just sit back and relax.

There is a science museum hidden in the back of the park. If open, it's a well organized and visually stimulating story telling of discoveries of a past... More

Very well laid out, landscaped, shady, and clean. Went there several times to take a break and watch all the locals enjoy themselves, especially families. Plenty of shady grassy areas.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
