Bursa

Architectural Buildings · Flea Markets · Sacred & Religious Sites
The first Ottoman capital and a World Heritage Site, Bursa is known as "The Royal Springs" for its famous hot mineral waters--though it offers much more than your typical spa destination. The thermal springs have been used since Roman and Byzantine times, but its most renowned baths and hamam architecture date from the city's days as the heart of the Ottoman Empire. Not far from Istanbul, the town draws skiers and outdoor enthusiasts because of its proximity to Mt. Uludag. Enjoy Bursa's prominent landmarks, including mosques, churches, bazaars, and theaters, and experience a cultural history that dates back to 4,000 BCE, when the city served as a trade center along the silk road. Use our Turkey day trip site to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Bursa.

Where to stay in Bursa

Known for its thermal waters and proximity to the popular ski resort of Mount Uludağ, Bursa offers upscale accommodations with a price.
