The views are to die for. I tried many different points in the city to get the best views, but this one is the best of them all. Had the admission for free as I purchased a city pass and I felt lucky I was able to go there. It’s the last floor of a shopping mall but it gives you a whole different perspective of the city. I could see the Bosporus, the bridge, and many tall buildings and houses. From up there Istanbul looks gorgeous without the traffic and the busy roads. I took many pictures, and this is the best place if you wanna snap your own!
