Uludag is the first love of skiers. With its
skiing slopes, hotels with big fireplaces for winter
and extensive pine forests stretching as far as
the eye can see, Uludag is a symbol of winter.
In the Classical Era, Uludag was known as ‘Bithynian
Olympus’ and ‘Mount Olympus’ and
for centuries it has been noted for its variety
of natural beauties.
Uludag, which is the transition point of the
Black Sea and Mediterranean climates is a virtual
paradise on earth. There are 791 varieties of plants
on Uludag, 104 of which do not grow anywhere
else in Turkey, and 28 of them cannot be seen anywhere
else in the world. The flowers of Uludag represent
all the colours of the rainbow.
Crocuses, delicate snowdrops, lilies of the valley,
poppies coyly swaying in the wind, daisies the scent
of which make you dizzy, lavender that reminds you
of past forgotten love affairs, anemones, the flower
of hopeless loves; all these turn Uludag into
a brilliant flower garden.
