Cumalikizik in Bursa
On arrival, the first thing you see are two huge plane trees at the entrance of the village and where the dolmuş drops you. You then follow the alleys and narrow roads leading into the village, some only wide enough for pedestrians and pack animals, others so narrow only one person can pass at a time and there are countless alleyways and cobblestone squares to explore.
Many of the houses have original double fronted doors studded with large headed nails and wrought iron strips with the ground and first floors concealing storerooms, inner courtyards and stables. The living quarters are upstairs and some houses still have bay or lattice windows and tiled eaves overhanging into the streets.
The mosque and hamam here are said to be over 300 years old and the very small museum has no particular opening times but if it is locked just ask anyone and they will fetch the curator. Inside is a hotch potch collection of village items such as old rusty farm equipment in the garden and swords, old radios and door knockers inside and around the main square are a couple of tea houses and a small bakery selling fresh delicious borek (Turkish sweet and savoury pastries).
