Panoramic Istanbul is a huge metropolis where many cultures intersect at once. So beautiful and great, once the capital of three empires, and today it is the largest city of the Turkish Republic, and more specifically, it is the soul of the current state. It has preserved traces of several religions and cultures at once, which still amaze tourists. Minister tours offers to take a look at panoramic Istanbul together and see with your own eyes the most beautiful and historical places of Istanbul.
Sightseeing tour of Istanbul will begin with a visit to “Miniaturk” is a large park complex with an area of 60 kV. Meters. It shows the city in miniature.
Everything is so realistic: walking paths, planted grass, entire blocks - it will help you get to know Istanbul in a few hours.

Next, Pierre Loti Historical Panoramic Restaurant is definitely included in the list of top places to see in Istanbul. Honorary French officer and writer, author of a line of famous colonial novels.

Continuing the route will lead you straight to the heart of the city - to the European district of Beyoglu. At the beginning of the founding of this area, foreign citizens settled here.
A walk around Istanbul cannot pass without the Galata Tower. The construction of this historical landmark comes from the 14th century. Up the tower reaches 70 meters, from where you can see the city at a glance. At the top is a restaurant where you can have a bite to eat. This place is known thanks to the tourist-inventor Ahmet Chelebi, he jumped from the tower and flew over the Bosphorus on a makeshift flying machine.
