The Ataturk Arboretum, comprising part of Belgrade Forest, contains a spectacular collection of plants and trees from around the world. Located only 20km from Istanbul, this 345 hectare peaceful sanctuary is heaven for nature lovers.

The Arboretum is especially popular with students and researchers, who come to admire and study the wide variety of greenery. Established in 1949, there are more than 2,000 species of living trees here such as the American tulip tree, Spanish fir and red-leaved Judas tree. The Ataturk Arboretum has contact with other botanic institutions worldwide and they are involved with regular exchanges of seeds.

2 ½ hectares are entirely dedicated to various oaks. Exotic species include the Chinese scythe tree, Asian sweet gum, Japanese hydrangea and Arizona cypress. There are plaques displaying the names of the trees and country of origin.
