Cornucopia’s travel guide

Cumalıkızık


Named because people gathered here to worship each Friday (cuma), this is the best preserved of several satellite villages that served Bursa in the early days of the Ottoman empire. The medieval streets are no more than lanes, with central gutters, and there are around 270 houses of historic interest. In 2014 the village was given Unesco World Heritage status along with Bursa, and some architectural elemnts can be seen in the city's Archeaological Museum. There is a small enthnographic museum in the village.
