Bursa's role in the past begins to take shape with the excavation work carried out at the place called Demirtaş Höyüğü (Mound). The history from today to exactly 7 thousand years ago is kind of jaw-dropping. It is even determined that its first inhabited life began in 5200 BC...

When you look at the famous history of Heredotus, it is seen that the oldest settlement in Bursa is the part named Cius of the period known today as Gemlik. It dates back to the 12th century BC, when Cius began to bear the traces of many colonies and other countries.

Bursa of The Ottoman Empire

Orhan Ghazi, who was the son of Osman Bey, the founder of the Ottoman Empire, and also referred as the second Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, took Bursa on 6 April 1326 and annexed it to the state territory. After that day, Bursa becomes a city where the belief of Islam is spread but everyone's freedom of belief is respected... Very important scholars and sultans grow in there, but they are not enough, it becomes the apple of the Ottoman’ eye and becomes the capital.

Bursa, which had been the capital of the Ottoman Empire for 39 years and was shaped by early Ottoman architecture and has been rebuilt in a kind of way, carries hundreds of years of architectural works within its structure almost in the glory of the first day.

Bursa developed under the auspices of the Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years. As if this would be the Bursa of the Ottoman Empire. The Ottomans also grew up in Bursa. So this city becomes a symbol for the Turks. Today, Bursa, which is part of the indivisible integrity of the state of the Republic of Turkey with the proclamation of the Republic, is one of the most developed cities in Turkey for its history and nature tourism.
