Cemil Topuzlu Park

Kuruçeşme, Istanbul

This small park is a welcome relief after the high walls covering the Bosphorus from Beşiktaş to Kuruçeşme, concealing luxury hotels and nightclubs. Another reason to visit is to glimpse Atatürk’s yacht, the Savarona, which is moored here. Launched in 1931 in Hamburg, she was the world’s most sumptuous yacht, according to Jane’s Fighting Ships, and also the longest at 136 metres. You can’t go aboard, but you can take a stroll in the park and stop for lunch or coffee on the terrace of the Park Fora fish restaurant.
