Escape the bustling streets of Istanbul and discover serenity at the Ataturk Arboretum, a sprawling 730-hectare sanctuary in the city’s north. With its tranquil lakes and a stunning collection of nearly 2,000 tree and plant species from across the globe, this arboretum offers a welcome respite from the city’s concrete jungle.

As you explore the Ataturk Arboretum, meander along stone and dirt paths that wind through groves of oaks, firs, maples, redwoods, and eucalyptus trees. With several kilometers of scenic trails, it’s an ideal place to soak in the fresh air, taking leisurely strolls or more brisk hikes, depending on your preference.

The Ataturk Arboretum’s history dates back to the Ottoman Empire when the very first swan nursery was established here in 1916. Today, the grounds are home to swans and turtles that grace the many ponds, enhancing the idyllic atmosphere.

Wandering through this peaceful environment, you’ll find a sense of tranquility that allows you to momentarily escape the hectic pace of Istanbul. Remarkably, the Ataturk Arboretum is located just 5 kilometers from the heart of the city, making it an accessible natural haven.

For those seeking more rugged adventures, Bahçeköy, a nearby town, serves as a gateway to the Belgrade Forest. The forest offers a network of well-marked footpaths, inviting hiking enthusiasts to explore its pristine wilderness.

The Ataturk Arboretum stands as a hidden gem in Istanbul, offering a beautiful blend of nature, relaxation, and exploration. Whether you seek a leisurely stroll, a deeper connection with nature, or a peaceful escape from city life, this green oasis is a true Istanbul delight.
