The Belgrade Forest is considered one of the largest and most beautiful natural parks in the city of Istanbul due to its charming nature, rare and dense trees, and the wild animals such as ducks, squirrels and other species that live there. The Belgrade Forest is more of a nature reserve than a traditional park. It is located 20 kilometers from the city center, in the European part. It is easily accessible by transportation and public transportation.
The Belgrade forests contain seven water lakes in which traces of ancient dams are still present. Therefore, they constitute a large source of water for the city of Istanbul, and a living natural lung because they contain a large amount of trees and various plants, which extend over a distance of more than 5,300 hectares, including 11 parks with an area of 700 thousand square meters. Open to visitors.
Those who come to Belgrade's forests at any time of the year can do many distinctive and useful activities, such as grilling meat with friends and family, walking among the trees and jogging in the arms of charming nature, or relaxing, contemplating, and watching wild animals throughout the forest.
