Marmara Region

Marmara Region where east indeed meets west. To the north west, Greece and Bulgaria add to local traditions. Istanbul, Turkey’s largest and most vibrant city stands, a bustling, vibrant, cosmopolitan hive of energy. Soaked in history and reminisce of the Ottoman times. The ancient Ottoman capital of Bursa is known not only for its historic architecture but also where Turkey’s elite spend their winters skiing on the mountain of Uludağ. A must visit region for every traveller.


Located north of Tekirdağ, Edirne (Adrianople) was the Ottoman capital for many years.


Çanakkale is the honourable resting place for the soldiers who lost their lives in Gelibolu.


The city of Bursa, southeast of the Sea of Marmara, lies on the lower slopes of Mount Uludağ (Mt. Olympos of Mysia, 2543m), with the city deriving its name from its founder King Prusias of Bithynia.


In the province of Balıkesir interesting historical sites seem to harmoniously blend with nature.


For more than 1500 years Istanbul was the capital of Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires.
