Minaturk is just what it sounds like: a mini version of treasures found in Turkey. The park contains 105 models done in 1/25th scale, about half of them from Istanbul and the rest from Anatolia and the Ottoman territories outside of Turkey.

The park is relatively small but it is nice to see if you have 1 or 2 hours free. For children, it will be very interesting. Take the bus 47c or 47e and you will be there within half an hour. Do it

If you ever visit LEGOLAND, there's a miniland in LEGOLAND. Miniaturk is just like miniland but not built from LEGOs. There are many things that you can see here. Not only buildings in Turkey, they have more building around Turkey.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening

The tickets for tourists who are foreigners usually costs 10 Turkish Lira. Studets obviously get a high discount on the price.

You can either take an Uber or a taxi to reach there. The entry fee is 25 TRY. There are bunch of restaurants to eat and places to visit. The Golden Horn view in the evening is itself charming.
