Sometimes getting a bird's-eye view of a place is the best way to understand the complete range of history that might be encountered there. A magnificent outdoor museum called Miniaturk showcases miniature replicas of Turkey's most well-known landmarks and buildings. Many other historic locations throughout Turkey are faithfully and intricately modeled in Miniaturk, an excellent museum and park.

Examples include witnessing miniature replicas of the fairy chimneys, which are often only seen in Cappadocia, or a model of Pamukkale, located in Edirne, in real life.

As a cultural and social responsibility project that draws strength and beauty from its 3,000-year-old civilization, Miniatürk is a delightful park. Future generations will discover the ancient roots of their civilization in Miniaturk.
