What To Expect

Covered Bazaar (Bedesten)
The Covered Bazaar in Bursa is much more modest, although it was once a very important producer of silk and continues to offer a large selection of fine silks. However, the silk you’ll find in Bursa today is mostly woven in other places and imported to the Covered Bazaar to be sold by the merchants.

Mt. Olympos (Tahtali Dag)
In Turkish, Uludağ means "great mountain". In ancient times the range of which it is a part, extending along the southern edge of Bithynia, was known as Olympos in Greek and Olympus in Latin, the western extremity being known as the Mysian Olympus and the eastern as the Bithynian Olympus,[2] and the city of Bursa was known as Prusa ad Olympum from its position near the mountain.[3] Throughout the Middle Ages, it contained hermitages and monasteries: "The rise of this monastic centre in the 8th c. and its prestige up to the 11th are linked to the resistance of numerous monks to the policy of the iconoclast emperors and then to a latent opposition to the urban, Constantinopolitan monasticism of the Studites."[4] One of the greatest monks of the Christian East, the wonder-working Byzantine monk Saint Joannicius the Great, lived as a hermit on this mountain.
