“To embrace sharp harmony and historic curiosities in the most sacred site of İstanbul”

 

Eyüp Sultan Mosque and his Tomb are the most sacred sites in İstanbul after Mecca and Jerusalem where thousands of faithful people visit everday.

 

Eyüp-El-Ensari was the flagbearer of Prophet Mohammed and died here during the Arabic siege

of the city in the 7th century. The old trees, pigeons, praying believers and the visiting crowd create

a mystical and colorful atmosphere around the mosque.

 

Teleferique to Pierre Loti Coffee House among the green which is located on a hill with beautiful trees where you can enjoy the wonderful panorama of the Golden Horn.

 

Bird’s eye view of the Golden Horn with the teleferique (cable car) while climbing to the café,

550 beeline meters in 115 seconds. The coffee house takes its name from Pierre Loti,

the French author and poet who was very fond of İstanbul and wrote as he sat in this coffee house while enjoying the view.

 

Miniatürk, “a story land”, the most influencing open field miniature park exhibiting scaled models

of the most known masterpieces which create a fairy tale environment of İstanbul, Anatolia and

the former Ottoman territories. It reflects the revival of Turkish culture and history in all its magnificence. Countless human figure models situated throughout the park such as a railroad worker, Muslims in a mosque courtyard, Jews praying in a synagogue, flower seller etc., portray lifestyle of the society through ages.

 

You will mostly enjoy the colorful shopping center where you may find the best souvenirs from İstanbul.
