“A place where you can get information”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

You are searching for some information about places in turkey? this miniaturk will give you a very unique information about any imprtant place.
Very cheap entrance fee, about 5TL.
The place is far from the town or any hotel you stay, you should take a taxi and be careful do not let the taxi go around and waste time! From taksim it should be 30-35 TL depends on traffic.

The miniaturk has a very huge database, you can listen to the information in your mother language, we could listen in Arabic actually.

If you like the historical information and places, you should stay in miniaturk about 3 hours.
If you are going to listen for specific places and go around, it should take about 1:30 hours.

Enjoy :)

“Very curious and interesting”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

I've never imagined that one day i will be visiting this place. But it's a must see if you like the culture, and it's very informative if you are curious about ottoman empire.
The designs are perfectly done with good information and very good architechture in the park
