My childhood in Bursa

My family moved Bursa when i was 12. I finished the high school there and then left the town for university education. After getting my university degree, i turned back Bursa. Now, i live in Ankara, but i prefer Bursa for living.

Short information about Bursa

Bursa is the 5th biggest city of Turkey. 2 million people are living in it. It stands on the slopes of Uludag (Mount Olimpos of Mysia) which is a famous winter-sports center. Its history dates back to Byzantine, however it is mostly known as being the first capital of the Ottoman Empires. It is famous for its hot springs, being the first ski-center of Turkey, being a very green city (not that much anymore)...

My blog about Bursa

In last days, i prepeared a blog on Bursa. Those of you who know Turkish can find lots of information about Bursa on my blog .I would be very happy if you visit it.

    I visited the tree in May, 2008. Our guides were 2 Turkish students studying at our local university I knew we were in a small village outside of Bursa, but didn't know the name. This will help me remember details of our side trip! Thank you. Geri Jones
