With a population of just over 1.5 million, Bursa, capital of the province which goes by the same name, is the fourth largest city in Turkey. Standing in the shadows of Mount Uludag in the south of the Marmara region, the city is surrounded by forests, and Bursa itself offers a wealth of parks and gardens. The city is also home to some magnificent architecture, including Ulu Camii (the Great Mosque), built in the late 14th century and featuring an array of 20 domes and 2 minarets, as well as a fountain on the inside where worshippers can perform ritual ablutions before prayer. The mausoleums of a number of early Ottoman sultans are also located in the city, as is the Bursa Archaeology Museum.
The very location of Bursa allows it to cater to a diversity of tastes and interests. With Mount Uludag and its famous ski resort on one side, and only a short distance to the Marmara coast on the other, visitors really do have the best of all worlds.
