“No choice”
Review of Bosphorus Zoo

Bosphorus Zoo
Ranked #425 of 1,109 things to do in Istanbul
Reviewed February 23, 2013

It's difficult to call this place a Zoo even after visiting Moscow or Singapore Zoos. Nevertheless there were a lot children we couldn't walk thru because local Turkish women smoked too much sigaretss and it was impossible even for us to breath.

It is quite far out of Istanbul - we were in the area and so went to visit it. It is not well sign posted either, but the local people directed us to it. The whole place looks a bit tired (we did however, go in the height of summer - so maybe that is why it was very dry and dusty). It has some good animals (tigers, lions and a black panther). The birds are lovely. All others - the cages were a bit small and bare. Children's play area was very scrappy and old. Restaurant was basic.
