What are the most beautiful swimming pools in Istanbul?

Summer in Istanbul is very warm, especially in July and August. During your stay, you will wonder how you can refresh and relax in a city that never stops. A good idea may be to go to the pool or beach (find our article on the most beautiful beaches in Istanbul).
