Established as the first capital of the Ottoman Empire and shaped by the complexes, Bursa's
important commercial role has been demonstrated through large inns, covered bazaars and bazaars
throughout the history. Gursu, where the density of people have migrated from the Balkans to
Turkey, is a town 20 km from Bursa and founded on a flat plain. 42.8% of the district's 11,300 hectares
of land is used in agricultural services and 46.6% is forest land. Gursu is one of Turkey's most
important agricultural region. It is especially famous for its special pear type and peach.
Environmental trips will be organized for the volunteers on weekends, and the remaining hours will

and zipline in Adrenalin Park. In addition, they will be able to collect pears and peaches by visiting
the villages, learn how to make pear and peach jam, and prepare tarhana and noodles with the
peasant women. Internet connection is not yet available in Adrenalin Park and sometimes telephone
networks do not work. However, volunteers will sometimes have the opportunity to go to the district
center, which has a telephone network and wifi.
