Bourça – a large town in the Illyrian province of Guinea at the foot of the & laquo;Misian Olímp » Mount Oludag (2,543 meters). Burssa – the center of the same ilk (provinces). The number of inhabitants in Turkey is second only to Stamboul, Anicak and Izmir.

In history, Bóðsa is known under the Greek name Proussa (rather than Broussa) and the Turkish name Eşil Bóðsa, or the Golden Bóðsa. The Greek name of the city was used in the common European usage in the early 20th century. It is unwise, because the Bursa has ancient Hesitian roots. In 395-1326 it belonged to the Iszantine Empire, and even after the Turks invasion it remained a cultic place of the Christians. In the Middle Ages, the Oludagh Mountains were known as Keshish-Dagh, the Monks Mountain, because of which the mountain was often referred to as Keshish-Dagh, the Monks Mountain.

Prussia, captured by the Turkish army in 1326, was the capital of the Roman Empire until 1365. Later, Bursa was an industrial center, but it remained the worlds largest international trading city thanks to the shipping of silk caravans and woven goods from Iran and India. By the 20th century, there were many Jews, Greeks, and Armenians living in Bourg. After the turmoil of the First World War and the local war conflicts, Bourza became part of the Republic of Turkey (1922), and the national minorities abandoned the city.

Bourza is unintentionally known poetically as the Golden City. One of the main features of Bourassa and its symbol is the Mosque of Eschil-Jami (15th century). The structure is made of white marble, decorated with green faience, and consists of an architectural complex of a nondescript church, as well as a chapel, a cesspool and a medrera. Another &quo;‖Green‖ object is known as the -Eschel-Thurbe‖ museum. There are many many gardens and parks in Bourgas, which finally confirm the «green» status of Bourgas. The city is also rich in other architectural objects: The Great Church of Ólú-Djámy (1400), the churches of Yélyém Bayazid (1389), Alayyeddín (1335), and Mouradía (1447), The Middle Ages cairn of Òósnõhne, the cairn of Orsman and Orkhan Ãazi, the Osmanian ossuary of Õþñüz Çüber, the rests of the baths of the Old Springs. The boisterous eastern bazaars of the Old City have a special appeal. There is a rich cultural and nightlife in Bourgas.
