After visiting the Topkapa Palace, you can walk down the park without tickets. There are bagel vendors at the entrance, one at 2TL. There are several flavors to choose from. The taste is good. There are many local couples taking wedding photos in the park. They should be the main attractions of the local people. We are the rare Asian faces of the day. There is a station on Line T1 at the gate of the park, and along the road, you can also walk to Sultanahamet Square. Along the way, there are various hotels, souvenir shops and travel agencies.
Turkey has a special terrain and undulating terrain. With its unique geographical advantages, the park combines the ancient fencing landscape around the park. Turkish local people with 35 friends, take their children's lover to spread a blanket on the grass, all kinds of tulips, super beautiful! __________
Istanbul is a lively, busy place. You want somewhere cool and calm without the awe inspiring architecture of the great mosques and palaces. So, you come to Gulhane Park. Huge trees for shade, the smell of flowers and the noices of the great city reduced to a gentle hum. The park is huge, really big and a welcome, beautiful oasis in which to sit, gaze, read and think. Then you plunge, refreshed, back into the maelstrom of the great city you never really left.
Gulhane Park, once the imperial garden of the Topkaper Palace, is now a free open park. The end of March and the beginning of April are the most beautiful time in the park, as the International Tulip Festival in Istanbul is being held in the park. Tulip is the national flower of Turkey. Now when it comes to tulips, the first thing people think about is the Netherlands. In fact, the Dutch tulips are also passed down from Turkey. In early April, when Turkey's tulips opened, tulips of various colors could be seen in the streets of many cities.
This beautiful park is an oasis in the middle of the hectic old city - like entering another world after the tourist crowds and vendors hawking their wares. Green lawns, fountains, tall trees and benches to relax on. I ended up here on a hot summer day after doing a lot of walking and took a much needed nap on the grass...and it seemed many others had the same idea.
