    Busstop

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With extra time to spare in Bursa, it's worth taking a trip out to the rural Ottoman village of Cumalikizik, 10km east on the Ankara road – easily reached by any dolmuº heading towards Inegöl from the dolmuº stop on Inönü Caddesi. The journey takes around twenty minutes

    Interesting living arrangements

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ground and first floors of the houses harbour the storerooms, stables and inner courtyards; upstairs, the living quarters present bay or lattice windows and wide tiled eaves overhanging the street. Many of the existing original double-front doors are studded with large-headed nails and wrought-iron strips

    MAybe this side street?

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Following the alleys into the village, you'll find that the roads are only wide enough for pedestrians and pack animals – some are so narrow that two people cannot pass each other – and there is a myriad of fascinating alleyways, dead-ends and cobbled squares to explore

    EATING GOZLEME

    Turkish food(gozleme)

    In Cumalikizik you can see a lot of village women making dough in front of their historical houses. In most, a cook sits at a low table in full view of diners, rolling out the dough with a brookstick-handle-thin rolling pin, then spreads the nearly one-meter-diameter rounds of paper-thin dough on a circular griddle to bake.

    Gözleme: A simple food however is very opten listed among the specialties in small eating spots. A very thin wrapped sheet of dough, similar to crepes baked on a curved sheet of metal and then filled with cheese and lettuce, potato, spinach, sausages. Also you can choose whether you want it with hot spices or not. It is served freshly made and can be covered with butter while warm.

    You can order your gözleme:

    Ispanakli = with spinach
    Karisik = mixed
    Kasar peynirli = with cheddar cheese
    katmer = plain
    kiymali = with meat
    patatesli = with mashed potatoes

    Graveyard

    This old graveyard was just behind the busstop. The graves that look like they have "heads" are male, no "head" is female.

    Dilapidated or romantique?

    Set on the lower slopes of Uludað, the cobbled streets are full of dilapidated buildings, leaning brokenly into each other. Is this romantic or just in a bad state of repair?

    The mosque

    Neither the hamam nor the mosque can be dated with any accuracy, though it's thought that they are around three hundred years old.

    Cumalikizik certainly makes a peaceful place to spend a couple of hours, drinking tea and watching the inhabitants gossip on the steps of their decaying houses.
