I arrived just after Spring, it must be quite something with the tulips. Without, it is still really nice.

I'm actually surprised that this park isn't higher up the list of things to see in Istanbul. My partner and I found it both beautiful and tranquil. Definitely a place to watch the world go by and is a welcome refuge from the Istanbul heat,...More

Very well taken park, squeaky clean, perfect gardening. Even on a rainy day it was a bliss to walk here. On the other side you can get to the shore line of Marmara sea.

It's a big park and busy with people walking around. Go for a stroll if you get time and relax and enjoy the views.

Gülhane Park is located very close to Topkapi Palace, because it is actually part of the palace environment. At Gülhane Park we will be greeted by a wide and clean pedestrian path. A row of multicolored tulips greeted along the periphery of the road. Beautiful...More

Sultanahmet

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
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
