Taking A Walk In Nature Could Be The Best Thing You Do For Your Mood All Day.

Do join us and enjoy the day.

The best green area close to Istanbul is, for sure, the Belgrade Forest. This extensive woodland area, located about 15km from Istanbul, makes for a pleasant city escape.

Belgrade Forest gets its name from the fact that in the 16th century the area was populated with Serbians brought in by Sultan Suleiman I to tend to the infrastructure that provided water for the burgeoning city.

Flora of the Belgrade Forest
The forest has a delightful mix of trees including oak, oriental birch, common hornbeam and the Anatolian chestnut. Many varieties of birds and animals such as weasels, deer can be spotted- even the occasional fox or wolf, if you’re very lucky!

There is a 6 km footpath that surrounds a central lake that is a favorite for runners in this metropolis of 17 million people.

Getting to and from the forest may be a little tough if you don't have a car. Fortunately We have cars and we are going together .
We are going to pick you up from meeting point.

We are going to see all above mentioned nature and take photos of all and complete 6 km path by walking.

Before forest visit we will get a good breakfast at a famous borek (pastery) restaurant named Protected content nearby the forest.
Serving up börek since Protected content , the Protected content is famous for the kol böreği of this neighborhood. Kol Böreği is widely popular style of börek that is made from puff pastry and shaped into a spiral that is cut up into slices of long rolls. Kol böreği comes filled with a variety of ingredients, most traditionally cheese, spinach, potato and the beloved minced meat version which includes currants and pine nuts.
