Aydos Hill is the highest point in Istanbul with an altitude of 537 meters. You can see the islands, let alone Istanbul, from this hill, which is cherished by those on the Anatolian side. For this reason, it is the perfect place for sunsets and sunrises. In areas such as Aydos Pond and Aydos Forest recreation area, you can take photos, do sports, or enjoy the picnic leaf view.
Otagtepe / Kavacik
The view of Otağtepe Park, where many TV series and movies are shot, is so beautiful that this must be the place they call a fake paradise. This place, where you can see the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge and the Bosphorus bridges from a bird's eye view, cannot be beaten with pleasure when combined with the unique sea view.
Ulus Park / Etiler
Ulus Park, which has perhaps one of the most beautiful views of Istanbul, awaits you in the lush trees and in the heart of the city. You can also have a nice meal with your child at the cafe in the park, and it is a nice park to enjoy the view and fresh air.
Galata Tower / Beyoğlu
Of course, this list could not be completed without writing about the Galata Tower. In my opinion, it is the place with the most beautiful view of Istanbul. I am sure you will admire this view, which is very harmonious with the Bosphorus, Golden Horn, Topkapi Palace view, historical Galata, and Eminonu bridges.
The Mihrabat grove, located in Kanlıca, one of the most beautiful districts of the Bosphorus, allows you to look at the Bosphorus from a different angle. In the grove, the fresh air and the endless greenery were in his head. When you come to Kanlıca, do not forget to eat Kanlıca yogurt.
A place where you can watch Istanbul from the heart of Istanbul. The area between the Galata Bridge and Unkapanı Bridge, stretching from Persembe Market to the Golden Horn coast, with a viewing angle of approximately 700 meters, resembles a painting. Although it is five to ten meters high from the sea, the terrace, where you can see Sarayburnu, Hagia Eirene, Hagia Sophia, Galata Bridge, Camlica Hill, and Maiden's Tower, also sees Galata directly opposite.
Yuşa Hill / Beykoz
The highest hill in Istanbul is undoubtedly Yuşa Hill on the ridge of Beykoz. You get the feeling that you are looking at a big pool while watching Istanbul from here. When you break your route from Anadolu Kavağı to Beykoz's Tokat Village, you can watch Istanbul as if you were watching it from a plane. Although it is very far away, it is one of the most visited hills.
If you want to spend the weekend avoiding the crowd and noise without being too far from the city, let's take you to Yoros Castle. The castle, which contains all the beauty of green and blue, is located in Anadolu Kavagi.
The hill, which sees the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge from a wonderful angle, is also the region where the birds migrating from Istanbul are best watched. İt is also possible to watch Hidiv Kasrı and Anadoluhisarı.
Nakkaştepe / Kuzguncuk
Nakkaştepe, where you can watch Istanbul from a height of 80 meters, is a secluded view terrace between Üryanizade Mansion and İcadiye Hill, but you should open your eyes… It overlooks Çırağan Palace, Yıldız Woods, Feriye and Ortaköy Mosque. From this point, you can breathe in Sarayburnu and Çubuklu with the magnificent Bosphorus view accompanying it.
Fetih Pasha Grove
This huge Fetih Pasha grove stretching from Üsküdar to Kuzguncuk is ideal for landscape photos and hiking. The calm, peaceful air of the grove is enough to take away the stress of the whole week. You can also have breakfast at the facilities inside the grove.
Molla Aski Park / Fatih
Molla Askı park, which has made a name for itself, especially with the Ezel series, has a view covering the Balat-Ayvansaray ridges, Galata, Sütlüce, Çamlıca, Golden Horn, and Fener. It is another pleasure to watch the sparkling scenery while sipping your tea, especially in the evenings.
