Bursa’s well-known hot mineral waters have been famous since Byzantine and Roman times. Bursa was the first capital of the Ottoman State between 1335 and 1413. The city has also been referred as Yeşil Bursa (“Green Bursa”) in reference to the parks and gardens located across its urban fabric, as well as to the vast and richly varied forests of the surrounding region.
