Owner description: Minaturk is just what it sounds like: a mini version of treasures found in Turkey. The park contains 105 models done in 1/25th scale, about half of them from Istanbul and the rest from Anatolia and the Ottoman territories outside of Turkey.

“Excellent for tourists”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is the place I wish someone had told me to go BEFORE I did anything else. Here you can see the miniature of basically all the major historical attractions and places of interest in Turkey. That way you can choose which ones you fancy the most and actually start planning your whole trip from here.

“Instant Turkey in one place!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

A must see if you visit Istanbul. You can see all other places and building all over Turkey in miniature version in this place. After visiting this place we realized that theres many more to see in Turkey and decided to visit again next year.
One more thing, children will love this place as well.

“EVERYWHERE.”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

it shows you everywhere in turkey. The interesting thing is that it shows you the areas you didn't have a chance to see. A great fun for children.

“Very Nice”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Firstly, don't follow on googlemap. it totally wrong! use its website to search the exact location & details about it (bus number etc). You can take bus from Eminönü ; 47, 47 Ç, 47 E Bus. Nice view (surrounding) and miniatures are very cute & real. Small entrance fees. Kids love it :)

“Turkey in 2 hours walk”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

If you want to see miniatures of famous Turk monuments, buildings etc visit this open air museum. It's not all about Turkey. When you're inside you'll forget where you're are. It's so interesting and so real. Miniatures are as originals, but with reduced dimensions. If you want to avoid crowd and big groups visit it in the morning and enjoy your time.
