Bursa Tours


We start our Bursa city tour with Karagoz and Hacivat, Ataturk museum, Muradiye mosque, Ulumay Museum of Ottoman Folk Costumes and Jewellery, Tophane after visiting here we will get our lunch and later on we will visit Bursa museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts and Bursa city museum.

Karagoz & Hacivat: First we will visit these two wicked mans monuments graves for learn their stories. Karagoz (meaning black-eye in Turkish) and Hacivat (also written Hacivad) are the lead characters of the traditional Turkish shadow play, popularized during the Ottoman period. The central theme of the plays are the contrasting interaction between the two main characters: Karagoz represents the illiterate but straightforward public, whereas Hacivat belongs to the educated class, speaking Ottoman Turkish and using a poetical and literary language. Karagoz's native wit always gets the better of Hacivats learning (but his money-making ventures always fail).

Karagoz-Hacivat plays are especially associated with Ramadan. Until the rise of radio and film, it was one of the most popular forms of entertainment in Turkey. It survived till today mainly in a toned-down form intended for audiences of children. Karagoz and Hacivat themselves were two laborers whose banter entertained their co-workers (and slowed down the work) during the construction of a mosque in Bursa during the reign of Orhan I (who ruled the Ottoman State 1326–1359). They were executed for the resulting delay of the work, but became folk heroes.

Ataturk Museum; On the south side of Bursa is a handsome late 19th century house in which the "Father of modern Turkey" stayed during his thirteen visits to Bursa between 1923 and 1938. Converted to a museum in 1973 it contains furniture and personal effects belonging to Ataturk and a variety of documentation on his life. The building which is situated on Cekirge Avenue, is believed to be constructed at the end of the 19th Century. The lodge has two floors and a basement. During his second visit to Bursa in between 20-24 January 1923, Bursa Municipality had purchased this building from Colonel Mehmet Bey and presented it to Ataturk as a gift.

After that, Ataturk stayed in this lodge on his visits to Bursa. On 1938, the building was sold to the Turkish Republic Retirements Foundation by Bursa Municipality, and on 6 February 1968, the Foundation turned over the building to the General Directorate of Antiquities and Museums. On the fiftieth anniversary of the Republic, the building after being converted to a museum, opened to the public on 29 October 1973.

First Floor: There is a reception room on the right-hand side of the entrance and a dining room and a rest room on the left hand side.
Second Floor: The bedroom is on the right and the study room is on the left. Passing through the right hand side of the study room you will reach the greenhouse. The basement is used as the kitchen and the maintenance. Most of the furniture and articles in display are the originals used by Ataturk.

Muradiye Mosque; The Muradiye Complex or the Complex of Sultan Murat II, the Ottoman sultan who ruled 1421-1451, is located in the city of Bursa in Turkey.The large complex is composed of the Muradiye Mosque, Muradiye Madrasa, Muradiye Bath, Muradiye Hospice, a fountain, epitaphs, Sultan Murat II's tomb, Sehzade Ahmed's tomb, Cem Sultan's tomb, Sehzade Mahmud's tomb, Sehzade Mustafa's tomb, Gulsah Sultan's tomb, Ebe Hatuns tomb, Huna Hatun-Ak Tomb, Mukrime Hatun's tomb, the Saraylilar tomb, Gulrah Sultans tomb and Sirin Hatuns tomb.

The Mosque was the first project in the complex, completed in 1426. The mosque is built in a simplified inverse T plan with a domed portico in front, constructed of brick and with four major domes. Hexagonal tiles in turquoise and dark blue decorate the interior. There are two minarets, one that is old and one that is new due to collapse from the 19th century earthquake and was rebuilt in 1904. A fire damaged the mosque in the early 18th century, and so the mihrab was also rebuilt, in the rococo style.
