    An amazing waterways that separates Istanbul into two continents Asia and Europe. Scenery was incredible, lovely Ottoman Mansions, fortresses, and palaces. Very nice way to experience the city.

    Great location and fairly easy to find.
    Very well maintained during the winter, would probably be even better during the Spring/Summer.

    You must visit Emirgan Park during mid April till the first week of May to see Tulip Festival.
    The park is very large and colorful tulips. You can go there by taxi because there's no direct train to there.

    This is located in a shopping center. It is quite a distance from the city center.

    The whole place very well designed. It has several types of fishes and there is even a capybara but he is lonely.

    Overall, a nice place to visit for 2 hours.

    The place of Halic in Istanbul is really amazing. Next to amazing views of the water from both sides. Also the metro station of Halic is really great being located on a bridge. You can walk both ways and both ways are as amazing to walk to.

    There was an “offer” where it could additionally be taken a professional picture at the aquarium of you and your friends. That photo was a green screen ,so I believe the the prices are overrated. On the other hand we were happy to see sharks, although the aquarium was a little small

    Beautiful park for refreshing retreat from unrelenting pollution, endless vehicles, unwavering crowds and ceaseless noise.

    Be in solitude with nature. Hear your own footsteps rustling the fallen leaves, greet the occasional mortals, salute the endless oak trees and gulp in pure clean air.

    This park is a gift, a reprieve for one to standstill and be grateful.

    Logistics: train M2 to Haciosman (final stap at the end of the line), bus 42HM to last stop (aka 'terminal), walk to entrance.

    We took a 2 hours boat trip from Besiktas area to this island by ourselves without any tour and it costed us almost nothing. The island is a nice place with beautiful villas to explore and terrific views of the beach up from the hill. There are no cars on this island only electric vehicles and bikes. Lots of dining options and several cafes in addition to lokma and ice cream shops. Don't forget to get a souvenir from one of the street vendors.

    The show was fun. My 5 years old enjoyed it.
    The place needs some renovation and cleaning, but our experience was overall good.
    We did not like that they allocated time during the show for photo sessions. These could be done after the show, not during it.

    We walked in end of November in this amazing park, it’s around 5 km walking path, very nice in this season with yellow leaves on ground. Suitable for family and solo walk.
    Worth visiting polonez area if you are in Istanbul and you want to go to a peaceful place. Around 40 minutes by taxi and cost like 12 $ one way.
