Bursa is the center of the Turkish automobile industry, where FIAT and Renault have located their factories. The earliest known site at this location was Cius, which Philip V of Macedonia granted to the Bithynian king Prusias I in 202 BC, for his help against Pergamum and Heraclea Pontica (modern Karadeniz Eregli). Prusias renamed the city for himself, Prusa. It was later a major city, located on the westernmost end of the famous Silk Road, and was the capital of the Ottoman Empire following its capture from the Byzantines in 1326 until the capture of Edirne in 1365 and remained an important administrative and commercial center even after it lost its status as the capital. The Algerian resistance fighter Emir Abd el-Kader resided here for a while and Ismail Hakki Bursevi a famous Islamic scholar and Sufi is buried here.

Edirne is a city in Thrace, the westernmost part of Turkey, close to the borders with Greece and Bulgaria; the city was known in English until after the First World War as Adrianople. The city was founded eponymously by the Roman Emperor Hadrian on the site of a previous Thracian settlement known as Uskadama, Uskudama or Uskodama. Conquered by the Ottoman Empire in 1362, the city served as the Ottoman capital from 1365 until 1453. The Selimiye Mosque, built by Sultan Selim II in 1575 and designed by Ottoman master architect Sinan, has the highest minarets in Turkey, at 70.9 meters. The area around Edirne has been the site of no fewer than 15 major battles or sieges, from the days of the ancient Greeks. In particular, the catastrophic defeat of the Roman Emperor Valens by the Visigoths took place nearby, and the city was a vital fortress defending Ottoman Constantinople and Eastern Thrace during the Balkan Wars of 1912–13. The city was, however, occupied by the Russians in 1829 and 1878, and by the Bulgarians in 1912. Edirne is famous of its "liver in oil", white cheese and "fruit shaped soaps". Also in every June, there is an oil-wrestling festival called Kırkpınar. Kırkpınar is the oldest sport organization after the Olympic Games. The city initially took its name after its founder, and the usage remains current in Greek, though it has fallen into desuetude in English and other languages. The Turks, however, have commonly used Edirne (now the official and customary name) or Edreneh, and the Slavs Odrin; both of these are probably adapted forms of the original name.

Tekirdag or Tekir Dagh, referred to historically as Rodosto (Greek name: Redestos or Rhaedestos), is a city of European Turkey (Eastern Thrace), which during the period of the Ottoman Empire (before the treaty of Sevres in 1920) belonged in the vilayet of Adrianople. The city's population was in (1905) about 35,000, of whom half were Greeks who fled to Greece after the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923 and the creation of the Republic of Turkey. Today the city (population: 107,082 in 2000) is the capital of Tekirdağ Province with a population of 623,591 (2000). It is situated on the coast of the Sea of Marmara, 135 km. W. of Istanbul (Constantinople). The picturesque Bay of Rodosto is enclosed by the great promontory of Combos, a spur about 2000 ft. in height from the hilly plateau to the north. The church of Panagia (Virgin Mary) Rheumatocratissa contains the graves, with long Latin inscriptions, of the Hungarians who were banished from their country in 1686 by the Habsburg conquerors of Buda. Rodosto was long a great depot for the produce of the Adrianople district, but its trade suffered when Dedeagatch (present day Alexandroupolis) became the terminus of the railway up the river Maritsa (Greek: Evros). Rodosto is the ancient Rhaedestus or Bisanthe, said to have been founded by Samians (people from Samos, Greece). In Xenophon’s Anabasis it is mentioned as in the kingdom of the Thracian prince Seuthes. Its restoration by Justinian I in the 6th century A.D. is chronicled by Procopius. In 813 and again in 1206 it was sacked by the Bulgarians, but it continued to appear as a place of considerable note in later Byzantine history.
