Attractions in Istanbul
Modern Istanbul is a very unusual city. Being the largest industrial and commercial center of the country, it managed to preserve all its historical heritage and beautiful southern nature. Therefore, today tourists from all over the world flock to Istanbul. Separately, we should also thank the father of modern Turkey, Ataturk, who has noticeably weakened the influence of Islam on the business and culture of the country. Thanks to this, Istanbul is very fond of investors and ordinary travelers, who finally were able to explore this region without fear of getting into an unpleasant situation, faced with not too friendly-minded advocates of Sharia values. So today, attractions in Istanbul are available to absolutely all tourists, regardless of their beliefs and religious tastes..
"Turkish Disneyland" - VIALAND
This amusement park is deservedly in the first place in the list of attractions in the city. In fact, this is a city within a city, because at the disposal of a tourist there are not only all kinds of attractions, but also recreation areas; shopping centers; parking; sports centers; hotels; Cafe; restaurants.
So you can literally settle in this amusement park. It is also noteworthy that a little more than ten years ago there was a fetid swamp in this place, poisoned by oil products and city drains, and no one could even imagine that such a miracle would soon appear here. At the moment, VIALAND continues to grow actively, offering guests more and more interesting and new.
Skyscraper Istanbul Sapphire
Another notable place. The height of this skyscraper is 261 meters, making it the tallest building in Turkey. On the territory of the skyscraper there is a 4D cinema, gardens, swimming pools, a golf course, as well as shopping areas, parking lots and luxury apartments..
It is attractive for a tourist because one can admire the surroundings here not only from the observation terrace, located at an altitude of 236 m, but also from the very top. At the moment, the entrance there is not listed in tourist guides, but it is not guarded by anyone either, so you can freely enter the roof and take a couple of gorgeous photos.
