This is the tallest building in Istanbul, from which you can see the panoramic view of the city. The houses seen from the observasion deck look like those of dolls' , which reminds me the scene I looked at the Sunshine City Building of Ikebukuro, Tokyo, when I was small. Istanbul Sapphire brings back memories of the day of my... More

It's unbelievable that so few tourists are going up here. By far the best view on Istanbul, esp. if you want to understand why Istanbul is not only a city of historical buildings full of tourists. Very easy to reach : just take the metro from Taksin to Levant4. The service in the shop is great, in the restaurant it... More

It is one of the highest buildings of Turkey and Europe. The lower floors of the building is a mall. But most of the shops are not opened yet. There is an observation deck on 54th floor. And you can watch large part of European part of the city from here. You can take closer look to city’s showplaces using... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the tallest building in Istanbul. Make your way up to the observation floor on the 54th level to see spectacular 360 degree views over Istanbul. Also great fun is the SkyRide (extra cost) - an amazing 4D helicopter ride which lasts for 10 minutes. We went early on a Saturday evening and had to queue... More

Strangely enough, we visited three years ago, it was a good shopping mall, with lots of outlets. Now, half of them are closed, the place looks deserted. Nothing special now. And you can find most of the outlets, that are still there in other places, or just in the streets of Istanbul.
