Especially in summer, we’re going to picnic there. Santralistanbul is a university campus which contains some restaurants and an energy museum. If you want to have a relaxing half day, you can choose to go to Santralistanbul. You can have a beer or snacks in the restaurant and see the museum. The museum also has a gift shop and designers will love that shop because there are several kinds of sketch books. I’ve got one :).
After the museum, if the weather is sunny you can take your coffee from Starbucks and lay on the grass near a tree. Santralistanbul also has a good view because it’s near Haliç (the part of the sea).
When I go there with a visitor from out of town, I take her/him to miniaturk first. After miniaturk, we come here to rest.
