- It's a sweltering 35°C in the shade. Feel like some ice? What about an entire rink full of it? Ice skating in Istanbul is probably more a retreat from the summer heat than a real sport, but it's popular all the same. Despite their lack of skill, the place is always crammed with cheerful skaters that seem to spend more time on their posteriors than they do on their feet. Galleria is the only rink in town open to the general public and it's very relaxed and lots of fun. Ice-skating classes are available in the evenings.
