Bursa is settled on the northwestern slopes of Mount Uludag in the southern Marmara Region. It is bordered by the Sea of Marmara and Yalova to the north; Kocaeli and Sakarya to the northeast; Bilecik to the east; and Kutahya and Balikesir to the south.
The city is frequently cited as "Yesil Bursa" (meaning "Green Bursa") in a reference to the parks and gardens located across its urban tissue , as well as to the vast forests in rich variety that extend in its surrounding region. The city is synonymous with Mount Uludag which towers behind its core and which is also a famous ski resort. The mausoleums of early Ottoman sultans are located in Bursa and the numerous edifices built throughout the Ottoman period constitute the citys main landmarks. The surrounding fertile plain, its thermal baths, several interesting museums, notably a rich museum of archaeology, and a rather orderly urban growth are further principal elements that complete Bursas overall picture.
