The view from the observation deck is absolutely amazing ! The best view of the whole Istanbul. Seeing Istanbul from there makes you understand how big this city is and how wide its complexity is. It is very easy to reach. If you want to reach it from the historical center, you can take the Marmaray from Sirkeci to Yenikapi... More

Really great place where you can spend your day between shopping, having luch/dinner, entertainment, wax museum, and panoramic view of Istanbul! To get to Istanbul Sapphire, take the metro from Taksim Square to 4 Levent. When you get off the metro at 4 Levent read the panels and exit from where it's written Sapphire mall. You will find the mall... More

This observation deck offers a sweeping panorama of all Istanbul and its water features without any crowding. In four visits now, my family tells me they have had the place almost to ourselves. The partially open roof and glass to the floor gives a feeling of spaciousness with fresh air, not cramped like the Empire State Building in New York.... More

The second interesting moment is that the elevator takes only to the first observation point, but... More
