Skip Navigation Links.

Bursa, the first capital city of Ottoman Empire, was established on the slopes of Uludag, which ancient named Mountain Olympus. Cekirge natural thermal sources here encouraged Ottomans during the period of Murat I (1359 - 1389) to build a Turkish Bath complex with a greater dome in the same place where Roman and Byzantine Turkish Bath complex once existed. Bursa is one of Turkey’s centers, which has importance for both the abundance and the quality of its medicinal water sources. It is nearly impossible to find a richer place in spas, mineral waters, natural and spring water sources than Bursa. Hence, it has the appellation “City of Spas” deservedly.

As Uludag, which is called Olympus “Mountain of Gods” in mythological records, is a former volcano, it is a great depot in terms of thermal and mineral sources. The medicinal water of Bursa springs on the northern slopes of Uludag and the underground crack which goes from Cekirge to Lake Ulubat accompanies these waters. These are juvenile waters coming from a depth of 2000 meters to surface.

As well as the unique historical wealth and natural beauties, Bursa is a tourism magnet which hosts tourist for the four seasons with its spas and medicinal water sources. Most of these world wide famous thermal hot springs which have been used since the Roman Age, served both to emperors and sultans.

There are a lot of thermal sources around Cekirge, which have different levels of temperature from each other. The temperature of Vakifbahce Spring is 47°C, the temperature of Karamustafa Spring is 58°C, the temperatures of Kaynarca and Yenikaplıca Springs are 78°C and the temperature of Sulphurous Spa Spring is 77°C

These thermal water sources are benefited as drinking and bath cures. Bath cures are affective on rheumatism syndromes, other aching diseases of skeleton system, chronic inflammatory and aching gynecological diseases, atherosclerosis, bronchitis; drinking and bathing composed cures are affective on liver, gall bladder, light diabetes, gout which is not in crisis stage, excessive fat accumulation in blood.
