Old Greek Town with Greek Music | Trilye - Bursa - Turkey


Tirilye is a historic town on the south shore of the Sea of Marmara, Turkey's great inland sea which connects the Aegean Sea and (via the Dardanelles and Bosphorus Straits) the Black Sea.  Like many of the towns in Turkey's Marmara and Aegean regions, Tililye was founded by the Greeks who colonized western Turkey in the first millennium BC.  Seen here in this drone video by dronevfx, it's home to a number of Byzantine-era churches which subsequently became mosques as control of the region shifted into the hands of the Ottoman Empire.
