After visiting Iznik, our next stop was Bursa and this was also where we were going to overnight. It was quite a long drive today as the distance from Istanbul - Bursa is 240km but speed limit is only 90kmph. Bursa is in northwestern Turkey and the seat of Bursa Province. It is settled on the northwestern slopes of Mount Uludað in the southern Marmara Region. It is bordered by the Sea of Marmara and Yalova to the north; Kocaeli and Sakarya to the northeast; Bilecik to the east; and Kütahya and Balýkesir to the south.
The mausoleums of early Ottoman sultans are located in Bursa and the numerous edifices built throughout the Ottoman period constitute the city's main landmarks.
Karagöz and Hacivat shadow play characters were historic personalities who lived and are buried in Bursa. Bursa is also home to some of the most famous Turkish dishes, especially candied chestnuts and Ýskender kebap. Its peaches are also well-renowned.
