Lovely park to stroll around with some great views of the city. Be very wary of the dogs sleeping and/ or wandering around the Gulhane park sign near the entrance. I saw a tourist get his leg bitten and jeans torn by the dogs as...More

Well laid out park. No admission charge. Located pretty close to Topaki Palace and the Architecture museum which can be pretty busy. So a good place for a wander to escape the crowds for a while. Plenty park benches and a wee cafe to pop...More

The park is quietly Grand and the grounds of flower displays put our city/ local gardens to shame, I don’t think they have a budget to go by, in the right season you can see all the plants/flowers being planted. I think this garden leads...More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
