This is such a pretty park! Full of locals hanging out with picnics. A great spot for people watching and a welcome respite from the main sites.

This park is very close to the Topkapi Palace and the Museum of the History of Science and Technology in Islam. Therefore, it is a good place to have a nice time, enjoying the place which is very relaxing. Doing this while having some Turkish tea would be very perfect. There is a place where you can do this. Definitely... More

A reasonable park to let the kids run around in and enjoy. It had one major playground area. If you have small kids, you know it takes very little to please them. A swing set in the boonies of America or in busy Istanbul will make them squeal with excitement! Good place to take break from Aya Sophia/Blue Mosque and... More

Seen much better kept parks/gardens in my holidays. I wouldn't say this one was very well kept for a capital city. Lots of patches of dead grass and bird poo everywhere including the benches which isn't very visitor friendly. Istanbul has a lot of improvements to make. They need more flowers too, it was just grass and trees everywhere, didn't... More

A nice part of Istanbul to relax in. Close to Topkapi Place as well as Haga Sophia. In August a prefect place to watch the world go by.

It's a hot day in Istanbul.. I thought it would be good idea to pass on the park and take a break before we continue our walking to spice bazaar and Sirkage. It's just next to Gülhane tramway station and entrance is free. Good place for all types of visitors. I suggest to have any kind of transportation across the... More

This place is like a breath of fresh air in a hot, crowded city. It is right in the centre of the city, but once you enter the gates the hustle & bustle of the city fade away. The gardens are beautifully kept and it isvery pleasant to sit under the tree and catch your breath for a few miutes

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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.
