VIDEO: Cumalikizik’s Conventional Ottoman Village

Join David’s Been Here because they tour all the top towns, cities, attractions and sites throughout the beautiful & historical state of Turkey. Within this clip, David brings us 20 minutes to the conventional Ottoman Village of Cumalikizik beyond the city center of Bursa. Dating back to the foundation of the Ottoman Empire over 700 years, this ancient city holds strong to its roots with 270 timber homes remaining from the Ottoman period. As you wander through the picturesque cobblestone streets lined with open-air vendors (see the Sunday Market! ) ) , you are going to be hard pressed not to fall in love with the area. For one of the greatest adventures in Cumalikizik, like a traditional Turkish breakfast as shown by David here… genuinely unforgettable!!
