This tourist city is considered the nearest resort and summer destination for the residents of Istanbul, serving as a haven of rest and relaxation for tourists from all around. Sapanca is situated in the Sakarya province, in the Marmara region of Turkey, approximately 130 km away from Istanbul. It is renowned as one of Turkey’s most beautiful cities, often referred to as the “City of Dreams” due to its picturesque surroundings, including numerous waterfalls and the vast Sapanca Lake, one of Turkey’s largest lakes and the closest to Istanbul, sharing the same name as the city. The area also boasts many hills and features the famous Kartalkaya Mountain, especially popular among winter sports enthusiasts.
