This park allows you to enter Topaki Palace minus the crowd. There are many ruins and structures which would be just rocks to you if you don't have any licensed guide explaining the meaning to you.

This is a great park to take a walk, going to topkapi palace ou to just enjoy a calm walk. You have one or two cafes and the museum of science and technology of islam.

I went there with a friend, with family and kids and even alone to wander thinking about the past and future. IT is a very nice place to go to just about anytime you want to be with nature.

We walked through this park on route to Topkapi Palace. Not particularly large in area, planting for winter and spring was busily taking place. We felt that the large deciduous trees, of which there are many, must provide welcome shade from the hot mid-summer sun....More

Considering that apart the sultanahmet neighbourhood, Istanbul's center is not that picturesque, this part is an oasis. Very beautiful and large reminded me of western parks. I would surely recommend to go there after your visit in topkapi palace and even as a standalone attraction.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of

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

That's all probably a matter of taste but at that time of year and a few weeks before, there are beautiful flower displays everywhere, from the exit of the airport. Very pretty.
