    Where do you think a zoo would fit best in Istanbul?
    With the existing Bosphorous Zoo on the outskirts, where would a zoo be best in the centre?
    Explain where you think. It could be in a park, plot of land, section of city etc.
    It must be inside the centre less than 30 minutes away....

    Good Luck

    It is best for one zoo (primary for it's animals) to be located outside a city, or to be located in it's periphery (but still in the future that periphery will become another city part).

    I would loved to be outside a city, eg. on agriculture land or on hill in the near sorounding, or in vilage near the major city or town.

    I would not built a zoo in near proximity to some high-frequency highway because of the noise.

    Not to mention Istanbul has premium prices for land. And it will be very hard to find a large plots of land in that area.

    Not to mention tourism will be down a lot for at least the next 3 years regarding the terrorist attacks which almost happen on a monthly basis now in Turkey.

    Presumably this is totally hypothetical?
