We walked through Gulhane Park, in December, a lot of gardening was being done so probably not the best time to visit, otherwise it was very peaceful and looking at all the flowers that were being planted, I am sure it looks lovely in the Summer!

Lovely park to wander around in, with some water features around and sculptures dotted about. Great place also for a picnic.

It's a beautiful park. The images speak for themselves. The gardens are impeccable. A good place to escape. Very quiet.

This was a calm walk around with some nice designs around the trees, and fancier than usual benches. Police security on both ends, but that also means the occasional car driving through (sometimes a bit too quick). Calm stop, but it was lacking a little bit of pizzazz.

Really enjoyed walking through this park. I can imagine that in the heat of the summer it is a great place with the trees providing shade. In the shadow of the palace and a very central location to the other sights.

Our room at the Sirkechi Mansion had windows that looked out over the park so we knew it was full of flowers. But there's nothing quite like the massive beds of tulips found throughout the city in April. Walking through the park on the way to Topkapi Palace was a delight.

Thank Dorothy S

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood 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.
