“all turkey attractions in one place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

For a small fee you can see almost all the attractions found in turkey.
I advise to visit at the beginning of your trip to Istanbul and plan from there which attractions you want to visit
There is no roof so be aware of the sun or the rain depending on the season you are visiting

“Turkish minimundus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

If you were in Austrian Minimundus - the world in small scale then you will know what miniaturk is all about. It's like taking a tour of Turkey and Istanbul and seeing all the sights in front of you in a smaller scale and believe me some of the things are enormous even in small scale :) There are some places outside of Turkey also but I will not reveal everything to you right now. Just a small tip though - there is flyride simulation which costs the same as the entrance fee (10 liras). You will take a 10 minute ride in a helicopter and discover some places in Istanbul in a totally different way than before. The Miniaturk is not far from Galata bridge and you can get there with public transport (it takes you some 20 minutes if there are no traffic jams).

“Excellent for tourists”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
