TOUR 19: Bursa: the Green City

Settled on the northwestern slopes of Mount Uludag in the southern Marmara Region, Bursa is frequently cited as "Green Bursa", in reference to the parks and gardens located across its urban tissue, as well as to the vast forests in rich variety that extend in its surroundings.

The first major capital city in the early years of the Ottoman Empire; Bursa kept its importance as a commercial center, especially as the source of most royal silk products during the Ottoman period.

Thus, Bursa has traditionally been a pole of attraction, and was a major center for refugees from various ethnic backgrounds; and it holds an immaculate heritage of Ottoman civil architecture.


The tour starts with an early departure from the hotel (07:30 am). The ferry trip to the nearby city of Yalova is followed by a 45-minute drive to Bursa.

Places to visit are The Green Mosque, the Green Tomb, the Grand Mosque, the Covered Bazaar and the Old Silk Market. You may also taste the world famous "Iskender Kebap".

The return to Istanbul follows the same route.
