fresh & funky

Kartepe is the closest ski center to Istanbul, which is around 100 km away. Along with that, the center provides a cheaper service comparing to other winter sport centers. It hasn't been famous yet but Kartepe Ski Center is really new and is expected to be very famous soon. Being just 2 hours away from Istanbul, Kartepe helps stressed Istanbulites! The center is just 17km away from Maşukiye town which takes around 15 minutes of road surrounded by colorful and rich forest.

Maşukiye

recommendation by hasankemaluysal

Not very far from Istanbul (around 120km) Maşukiye provides spectacular picnic places. Ancient human made waterfalls work like they are just natural and the some restaurants located inside the forest are perfect places to eat fresh trout fish. It is always great to sit on a high dock and rest your eyes and mind, while the river flows beneath the dock with its musical sound. Once you fall asleep, you feel totally rejuvenated when you open your eyes!
