The MUNIA 2019 conference will take part in Bursa. Bursa is one of the great places in Turkey that tourists usually want to visit after seeing the major cities. It is a historical city located in the Marmara region. The most important aspect of Bursa is that it was the first capital city of Ottomans. You will find numerous historical residuals and structures throughout the city.
An airport serving domestic can be found in Bursa (Yenişehir Airport). However, in order to get to Bursa from most countries by plane, you will have to fly to Turkey's international airports. Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen is the nearest major international airport and the most common way of getting to the city is the direct-bus services which takes 90 minutes from the airport to the Bursa downtown. You can also prefer Istanbul Ataturk Airport then you can travel by a fast car ferry from Yenikapi to Bursa.
Being the in very center of a transport-hub, Bursa is reachable by bus from every corner of Turkey. International buses (Bursa Turizm) also operates from/to Xanthi Greece and Kardzali (Kırcaali) Bulgaria everyday.
There are two main options from Istanbul: The ferries operated by BUDO run from Kabataş directly opposite the tramway terminus to Bursa. You can take the M1 bus from Mudanya to the Emek metro station, and then to one of the city metro stops from there. If you are near Sultanahmet, and can find your way to the terminal through the foreshore renovations on foot, you can take the Yenikapı-Bursa car ferry from Istanbul Yenikapı terminal (in the European part of Istanbul near Sultanahmet) to Guzelyali, Bursa (80 minutes). Güzelyalı is about 20 km from Bursa so buses meet the ferry to take passengers to Organize Sanayi metro station (30 mins) in the outer suburbs of the city. Take the metro to downtown Bursa - get off at Şehreküstü station for the old section of the city close to the market area (30mins). The whole journey from Istanbul to the centre of Bursa will take about 2.5 to 3 hours.
It's also possible to transit through Yalova fast ferry jetty, about an hour bus ride north of Bursa. The ferries operated by IDO can leave from Yenikapı, Kabataş, or Kadıköy. Tickets can be booked online, but only if you have a Turkish phone number.
