Visit Top 6 Istanbul Parks
1. Macka Democracy Park
This park, ideal for artists, is showered in a wide variety of colours. You could embrace the colours of brown in fall, and variations of green can appeal to the soul as spring arrives. The park transforms into a pretty white as the snow comes in the cold season. Two different recreational fields, two separate children’s playgrounds, two coffee houses (in which you can also get a plate of food), a man-made mainland and nine different synthetic pools are situated in this park. To get to Taksim really quickly, you could use the string railway within the park!

6. Cubuklu Park
Just on way from Üsküdar to Beykoz, on a hilltop the Bosphorus, Çubuklu Park, that undergoes a radical turnaround in spring and early summer, the Khedive Palace offer breathtaking views of the Bosphorus. We know that Istanbul is rich in historical attractions, and we already realise that numerous lavish mansions and vacation residences were left by the Ottoman Empire for us to enjoy today.
Most of these are conveniently situated within the area, making them easy to reach, but due to the traffic on the road, they are often very loud at times. If you want to feel real happiness and peace when you move back through history, then the place for you is Khedive Palace.
You will witness the spring to the maximum potential in the tulip gardens circling the Khedive Palace joined by chirping birds, stroll along the road zigzagging through the pine trees, and take in the scenery through the observational patio.
Khedive Palace is functional from 9 am until 12 am every day. The palace is situated on the Asian side of the city, so through Marmaray, the simplest way is to travel over to Kadikoy. The castle is conveniently signposted and just very few minutes’ journeys from there. To take advantage of the Marmaray ferries, you will require your Istanbul Card.
