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.

It was great, with all of Turkey laid out before you. This was both fun and informative. The only thing that kept it from being a five star rating for me was that some of the exhibits were in a bit of disrepair. I'll definitely be back.

Very nice overall and within the city ..... If you have kids and want to make them happy after tiring visits to historical places .... this is one of the places to go in addition to the aquarium.

This is the second time I have visited this place and it never ceases to amaze me. Lovely place to go with the family and cheap entry. The dress up as a sultan is a must at the photo studio.

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.
