For those who will be in Istanbul for the long Ramadan holiday, many family-friendly places, including museums and theme parks, are ready to make your holiday an unforgettable one.
A global chain of educational theme parks called KidZania, allows children to take on an adult role and be introduced to the adult business world. It is a win-win concept for children, as they have the opportunity to explore occupations they are interested in while having fun at the same time. Located in the Akasya Shopping Mall in the district of Üsküdar on Istanbul's Anatolian side, KidZania is like a planet managed by children. Every building, as well as the streets in KidZania, are designed for your children. For first-time visitors, a boarding pass is given to children who then visit a huge Turkish Airlines (THY) plane. Once your family has received their boarding pass, the signs show you the way to the Kidzania planet. For children who are visiting KidZania for the first time, it is recommended that parents accompany them. Children between the ages of four and 14 are allowed to try out their dream jobs in KidZania. From being a policeman to a radio programmer, endless vocational options are available for children. Upon entering, kids are given radio frequency tags that do not allow them to exit the premises without setting an alarm off or without paying 50 kidzos - KidZania's currency. They can withdraw their money from the KidZania bank, which is also staffed by children. Kids can either spend their money on souvenirs or snacks. Children also earn money for their 25-minute shifts during their jobs. To help prepare your children for adult life and expose them to the basics of business life, KidZania in Istanbul awaits your children in Istanbul.
To see the miniature version of Turkey, Istanbul's "Miniatürk" along the coast of the Golden Horn is a must-see for visitors. All of Turkey can be seen in this miniature park, which is built over a 56-hectare area. The park includes the miniature versions of historical Ottoman architecture, buildings, palaces and mosques from all over the country. If you want to see all of Turkey in a short amount of time and without traveling thousands of miles, Miniaturk can be an enjoyable option for you. There are nearly 105 models of architectural structures in the park. While 45 of them are historical structures from Istanbul, 45 of them belong to other cities around Turkey. Also, nearly 15 structures made by Turks are on the borders of other countries. All miniature versions are 1/25th their original sizes. The park is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekdays and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on the weekends during the summer. The miniature park offers a unique experience where you can learn about Turkey in detail.
