Bursa is a city located in the Asian part of Turkey, near the Marmara Sea. The city was the first capital of the Ottoman Empire, and today it is the fourth city of Turkey, after Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir. The bursa is often called "Bursa verde" - Yeşil Bursa, due to the beautiful parks with vegetation that lie on the city, as well as due to the large forests that extend outside the city of Bursa.
In the old town of Bursa there are many historical buildings. Here is the mausoleum of the first Ottoman sultans, and the buildings built during that period are the main attraction of the city. The fertile plains surrounding the Bursa, the thermal baths, some interesting museums and the urban development are the main elements that make up this destination.
The specific culinary preparations on the Bursa are the caramelised chestnuts and the Iskender kebab. The peaches from here are also famous. The city of Bursa is synonymous with the Uludag Massif, which rises behind the city and is a famous mountain resort.
It is said that the town of Bursa was founded in 186, i.e. by the king of the region of Bithynia, Prusias I, on the place of today's Citadel. During Traian's rule the baths and a library were rebuilt, and in Byzantine times the prosperity of the city of Bursa continued to be based on the thermal springs. Until 1361 the Bursa was the first capital of the Ottoman sultanates, but the prosperity period was the fifteenth century, the era that left behind numerous monuments and architectural riches.
