Mudanya & Bursa

  Mudanya


Mudanya (Mudania, Greek: Μουδανιά) (the site of ancient Apamea Myrlea), is a town and district of
Bursa Province in the Marmara region of Turkey. It is located on the Gulf of Gemlik, part of the south
coast of the Sea of Marmara. As of 1911, it was connected with Bursa by a railway and a carriage road,
and with Istanbul by steamers. Mudanya has only an open anchorage usable in calm weather. The
town produces olive oil and there is a pier used by local fishing and cargo boats.

The town was the signing place of the Armistice of Mudanya between Turkey, Italy, France and Britain
on October 11, 1922, following the Turkish War of Independence. After the Treaty of Lausanne, the
Greek population of the town was transferred into mainland Greece, establishing a settlement in
which they gave the name of their previous city, Nea Moudania (New Moudania, Chalkidiki peninsula,
Macedonia).
