Living in Bursa

Bursa, or the Green City, as it's known by some of the locals, is the fourth most populous city in Turkey. As such, it's an exciting and vibrant place that makes for a welcome home to anybody looking to start a new life. There are few architectural marvels that are more impressive than the Yesil Mosque. As well as looking incredible, the building is an important piece of history - it was built when Bursa was the capital of the Ottoman Empire and before Constantinople was captured by the Turks in 1453. Living in Bursa, your next stop should be to check out the Uludag National Park, which is popular spot for winter sport enthusiasts. If you need pointing in the right direction, or you want to find a platform for discussing your life as an expat in Bursa, you can't do much better than becoming a member of InterNations - on the site you can discuss living in Bursa with other expatriates who have already made the jump abroad.

Working in Bursa

Everyone knows what it's like to start a new job. You're constantly worried in the few days leading up to starting - thinking whether you'll fit in or not, whether you'll like the job, or even if you're cut out to do it. When you're moving abroad specifically for work this feeling of unease is magnified and working in Bursa or any other foreign city can be extremely challenging. The expatriates from the InterNations community have posted blogs, articles and forum posts that discuss this very subject, meaning you have somewhere to go to vent your frustrations and learn from others that you'll do just fine. The Expat Magazine has some handy insider information for you to browse through, and you'll feel more prepared with every article that you read. Some of the articles have been written by expatriates who have very similar working experiences to yourself and these are especially helpful when considering working in Bursa.
