Training possibilitiesThere are parks and roadsides where training is possible. If the accommodation is in the ancient peninsula, no problem.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Istanbul is an amazing city itself. Especially the Bosphorus and the attractive historical and unique places in the ancient peninsula where once the Sultan's lived worth visiting. The 24 hours live city offers you many alternatives to choose for shopping, food&drink, culture&music, hospitality&friendship. In the northern region of the European and Asian sides of the city nature shows itself. There are forests, resting and small excursion places spreaded through the Bosphorus and inner regions as well. The Prince Islands presents the tranquility of silence and sealife which is very near to the south coast of Istanbul's Asia.
