The Hidden Village on UNESCO's World Heritage List
At the foot of Mount Uludag, a mere 10km away from the city of Bursa, a tiny village hides in quiet solitude, hidden by leafy green trees. Dating back from the early years of the Ottoman Empire, Cumalikizik is a treasure trove for those seeking peace and quiet away from the city!
The village is tiny to say the least, and every house is brightly painted. In the foggy mountains, visibility is an issue for the villagers, which is why they painted the wooden houses in the brightest shades. The entire village has remained stuck in the early Ottoman period and is completely unspoilt - from the lifestyle of the villagers to the narrow cobbled alleys, everything has remained the same.
If you happen to be in Bursa or are planning to stop by, don't miss out on Cumalikizik. The place is unforgettable, and will take you back to your roots in just a few hours.
