Bursa, the first seat of the Ottoman Empire, is a city deeply-rooted in history and culture. A city of firsts, it still bears Roman, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman influences in its architecture …
Historic mosques and madrasas, markets and caravansaries that have been hubs of commerce for centuries, bathhouses (an essential part of Turkish culture), centuries-old plane trees, and a vibrant natural setting are all hallmarks of Bursa. The city is an amalgam of the old and the new, which is why it has been the backdrop for hundreds of films and TV shows.
