Istanbul for kids or March for traveling to Istanbul....

by Muwahhid

Good day,

Two quick questions - I have heard that there is a Disneyland or something like a Disneyland in Istanbul (I do not mean Miniaturk). Does anybody know how it is called exactly and where it is located?

Is March alright for traveling to Istanbul with kids?

Thank you in advance,

Probably you talk about Tatilya. It was a theme park which went bankrupt. It was located close to Avcilar which is quite close to Ataturk Airport. Anyway, you don't have that option anymore. Any season is ok for travelling, but the weather will be still cold. Expect some rain and even snow, but as long as you bring winter clothes, you won't have any trouble. I guess you will stay in Sultanahmet like most tourists do. From there, travelling around is very convenient so no worries. Enjoy Istanbul and take a look at my Istanbul page for things to do and places to eat :)

Other than miniaturk, actually there are some attractions that the kids may like.
For instance there is the dolphinarium, where there is a dolphin show.

And also there is the Turkuazoo, which is a great aquarium. ( it is said to be Europe's largest, but I dont know)

you can check out the following link for some ideas too.

Travel Tips for Istanbul

You have to visit the Grand...

by Sharkman

You have to visit the Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and also the Spice Bazaar (Misir Carsisi). Also you have to go and have a Turkish bath (Hamam). This is really wonderful after a long day/week. Even though i have been to Istanbul for a couple of times i haven´t been able to go out and clubbing. I have heard that Istanbul is a city that never sleeps. I have to go out next time!

Neve Shalom ..Synagoge

by Erkmen

In 15th Century, Jews persecuted in Spain and Portugal were encouraged to establish themselves in the Ottoman Empire.

In Istanbul the new immigrants settled mostly near the Balat quarter on the western bank of the Golden Horn where a Jewish community had existed since Byzantine times.

After the founding of Israel many jews has moved to Israel but still there are around 25,000 of them still living with us.. Happily.

Neve Shalom is one of the larger synagogues in the city, designed and decorated in a modern style. Inaugurated on March 25, 1951, it is used for major functions of the community such as weddings and funerals.

Music

by mavi-tr

In Istanbul people listen to all kinds of music, from rock to pop to jazz to metal to electronica, you name it and there's probably a club for it.

Every year there is an International Jazz Festival, A Music Festival and concerts from local and foreign acts.

Turkish music is as varied as foreign music with many styles.

Turkish CDs are an absolute bargain if you happen to get into it.

SALE PAVILION @ YILDIZ PALACE

by balhannah

Yildiz Palace, meaning Star palace, built in 1880, is the second biggest palace in Istanbul, was used by the Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid II. In the late 19th century, Sultan Abdulhamid II left Dolmabahce because he feared a seaside attack on the palace, so he expanded the Yildiz Palace.

The sultan’s residence was in the Sale pavilion. The building has two floors and a basement and was constructed in three phases.

The first part was built in the 1870s and was designed to resemble a Swiss chalet, hence the name Sale. Sir Winston Churchill and Charles de Gaulle were among the visitors to this part of the palace.

The second section was added in 1889 to accommodate Kaiser Wilhelm II, who was the first foreign monarch to visit Istanbul. It was during this phase that the Mother-of-Pearl Salon was added. The name derives from the extensive use of mother-of-pearl that covered almost all of its surfaces. There are also detailed painted landscapes on the ceiling.

The third section was also built for Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1898. The reception chamber was built during this period and remains the most impressive room in the entire Sale Pavilion. There is a single carpet on the floor that has an area greater than 400 square meters and was hand woven by 60 weavers. Elegant features of the chamber include a gilded, coffered ceiling and large mirrors. Abdulhamid II was a skilled carpenter and actually made some of the pieces of furniture that can be found in the Sale Pavilion.

This is another beautiful Palace well worth visiting.
The day I was here was a free admission day.

ADMISSION IN 2009 was 6 t/l Camera fee 15t/l

OPEN DAILY 9.30 - 4PM CLOSED MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS.

ENTRY through Yildiz Park - Barbaros Bulvari, Cirigan Caddesi, Palanga Caddesi Besiktas district
