8 November 2023

November 20, the date on which the Convention on the Rights of the Child adopted by the United Nations entered into force, is celebrated every year as World Children's Rights Day. Celebrated to emphasize the fundamental rights of children such as life, health and education, the World Children's Rights Day is one of the most important days in our country as well as all over the world.

As Flyista, we have researched the routes that children will enjoy in Istanbul this month and came up with the following list.

Vialand Amusement Park

Which child doesn't love theme parks? Vialand, one of the most enjoyable theme parks where even adults have a lot of fun, is Türkiye's first shopping and entertainment concept park. Spread over an area of 600 thousand square meters in Eyüp, you can find many adrenaline-filled entertainment units, especially Nefeskesen, which was selected as the best rollercoaster in Europe. It is possible to have a fun-filled weekend with your child at Vialand this November by taking advantage of the midterm holiday discount.

Rahmi Koç Museum

Rahmi Koç Museum

Located on the shores of the Golden Horn, this historical museum is as much a center of interest for children as it is for adults, because at the Rahmi Koç Museum, children have the chance to see many instruments from steam engines to ships, from classic cars to ferries, from movie machines to gramophones. As the first and only industrial museum of our country, Rahmi Koç Museum has turned into a social place where you can enjoy spending time with your family with its entertaining and educational concepts.

Snowpark Torium

Snowpark, the first snow-themed amusement park in Türkiye, brings the joy of skiing to children who do not have the opportunity to get away from the city for winter vacation. Located within Torium Shopping Center, Snowpark is open for four seasons. After enjoying the snow, you can continue your fun at Starpark in the mall with entertainment units such as the Tunnel of Fear, Bumper Cars or organize a GoKart race for the whole family.

Legoland Discovery Center

Legos have a very important place in the world of today's children as they did in the past. Legoland Discovery Center, where there are huge structures built with colorful lego pieces, is a wonderland for the children of Istanbul. So what can be done here? First of all, you can visit the lego versions of buildings identified with Istanbul such as Galata Tower, Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet in Miniland. The children's favorite places are the cinema where they can watch Lego's adventure movie in 4D, the Kingdom Adventure where they embark on a challenging mission with laser guns and the towns where they can learn many tricks about lego construction.

Sea Life İstanbul

Home to 500 different species and more than 15,000 sea creatures, from clown fish to jellyfish, Sea Life is a magical place where children are fully immersed in adventure. You can see Europe's largest shark family, meet various species of stingrays in Stingray Bay, visit the Turtle Hospital where cute turtles are being treated until they can be released back into the sea, and have the opportunity to feel many of the details you see in the aquarium in the Touch Pool.

We saved one of the most beautiful experiences you can have at Sea Life for last. A canoe adventure with VR glasses is one of the most popular parts of the aquarium.

Introduced to our country in 2005 by poet and writer Sunay Akın, the Istanbul Toy Museum offers a delightful journey through the evolution of toys from the 1700s to the present day. Showcasing toys collected from antique shops and auctions in over 40 countries, this unique museum captures the attention of both adults and children.

Events such as Discovery, Sensory Play Workshop, Fairy Tale Factory, Art Therapy for Adults, Wooden Toy Painting Workshop, and Creative Drama are some of the highlights for November.

Istanbul Butterfly Farm

Butterflies, one of the most enchanting wonders of nature, are beloved by all. Yet, how many of us are aware that Istanbul is home to the country's first butterfly farm? Upon arrival at the Butterfly Farm, visitors are greeted with a cinevision show that introduces the biological structure and life cycles of these exquisite creatures. A fascinating tour of the climate-controlled butterfly greenhouses follows, where one can experience the joy of butterflies landing on them. A visit to the Istanbul Butterfly Farm in Beykoz is possible between 10 am and 6 pm every day except Monday.

Darıca Hobbit Houses

Perhaps your child hasn't encountered Hobbits yet, but we are confident they will adore the vibrant Hobbit houses reminiscent of something from a cartoon. Nestled within a verdant area, this attraction is part of a coastal park featuring cycling and hiking trails, picnic spots, and playgrounds. The Hobbit Houses serve as a splendid backdrop for cherished family photos, and the best part is, there's no entrance fee.
