A view of entrance of Miniaturk Theme Park (Turkish: İstanbul'da Nereye Gidilir ve Ne Yapılır - Miniatürk veya Minyatür Türkiye Parkı girişinin bir görüntüsü). Istanbul, historically Byzantium or Constantinople, is the largest city of Modern Republic of Turkey, home to a population of about 14,000,000 in 2012. A mega city, it is the nation's cultural, economic, sport and financial center. Istanbul's historic areas were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985. It was named a joint European Capital of Culture for 2010 and the European Capital of Sports for 2012. Istanbul is currently bidding to host the 2020 Summer Olympics.

During its long history, Majestic City has served as the capital of the Roman Empire (330–395), the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire (395–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin Empire (1204–1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453–1922). The Bosphorus, a strait that forms part of the boundary between Europe and Asia, also known as Istanbul Strait (Turkish: Boğaziçi), which connects the Sea of Marmara to the Black Sea, divides the city into a European side, comprising the historic and economic centers, and an Asian, Anatolian side; as such, Istanbul is one of the two bi-continental cities in Modern Turkey. Consequently there are many wonderful places (Top Sights) to go, see and do in Capital of Civilizations: Istanbul. Some of the sights you should be sure to see, ranked in order of importance and ease of access. One of these sights is Miniatürk or Miniaturk Theme Park or Miniature Park of Turkey (3 of 34 Top Sights). Miniaturk covers a total area of 60,000 square meters. Its model area is 15,000 sqm, making Miniaturk the world's largest miniature park in respect to its model area. Miniaturk also boasts 40,000 sqm of open space, 3,500 sqm of covered area, 2,000 sqm of pools and waterways, and a parking lot with a capacity of 500 vehicles. The park contains 120 models done in 1/25th scale. 57 of the structures are from Istanbul, 51 are from Anatolia, and 12 are from the Ottoman territories that today lie outside of Turkey. Additional space was reserved for potential future models. The infrastructure was built taking into consideration the needs of potential additions. Therefore, Miniaturk will continue growing, modeling, in a sense, planned urbanization.
