Expert review of Miniatürk

Theme park with miniature reproductions of Turkey’s most famous sights.

Kids will love running around this theme park containing 100 miniature reproductions of sights all around Turkey, from Istanbul’s [node: 172658] to the stone statues of Nemrut Dağı in the eastern mountains. (The mini Atatürk Airport and TEM freeway are somewhat odder selections.) Adults will likely find the park extremely kitschy, either unbearably or awesomely so.

Price advice: 

Admission is 10 lira.

Expert tips: 
Weekends can be packed with Turkish families, but are fun for people watching.
The nearby Rahmi Koç Industrial Museum, full of all kinds of vehicles, is also fun for families.
