Despite being the second smallest region of Turkey, Marmara has the largest population. The region connecting Europe and Asia is the heart of Turkey in every respect.
Istanbul is the largest city in the region and Turkey. It was the capital of four different empires, namely the Roman, Byzantine, Latin, and Ottoman Empires. With its rich history, Istanbul is a unique city that must be seen.
Istanbul Airport is usually the first stop for tourists entering the country. The city is visited by millions of people every year with its squares, historical places, museums, and islands.
Bursa, the first capital of the Ottoman Empire, has many historical buildings from the founding period of the empire. The city is also an important tourist destination in terms of nature sports. The ski resort Uludag is very popular due to the variety of accommodation facilities and its proximity to the city center.
Canakkale, which, like Istanbul, is a bridge between Europe and Asia, is home to the ruins of Troy and Gallipoli Peninsula Historical Site. In addition to Gallipoli and the Troy Ancient City, Turkey’s largest island, Gokceada, is also worth visiting.
