Bursa

(3.9/5 based on 3,600+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, shopping, nature
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. Add Bursa and other destinations in Turkey to your travel itinerary using our Turkey itinerary builder.

Where to stay

Known for its thermal waters and proximity to the popular ski resort of Mount Uludağ, Bursa offers upscale accommodations with a price. Here you'll find mostly four-star hotels, including some international chains, all renowned for their spa offerings. If you want to explore the marketplaces of the early Ottoman era, it makes the most sense to stay right in town. If you're looking for a more budget-friendly alternative, check out the limited number of family-run hotels in town, or look to the guesthouses on the outskirts.
