Nilüfer

The Nilüfer (lotus) county, referred to as the “Bursa of the Future”, got its name from the Nilüfer Stream that passes through it, which also got its name from, Nilufer Hatun; the wife of Orhan Gazi. A newly structured county and being suitable for modern urban planning conditions are important features of the Nilüfer county. The Gölyazı village, located on the shores of the Uluabat lake is to be remembered with its monumental tree; the “Crying Sycamore”, spectacular nature, the Temple and Church of Apollon. The village is protected by law as “a conservation area”. The Ayvaini Cave, which is the 6th longest cave of Turkey is located in the Ayva village, near the Ulubat Lake, 40 km away from Bursa City. Additionally, today known as Gümüştepe, formerly known as “the Misi village”, famous for wine-making, has also become a touristic center with its historical buildings and natural beauties. The transportation is provided through the İzmir Road from the city center .
