Golyazi (Apollonia) Village

Gölyazı is a village of Bursa city at the shore of Ulubat Lake also known as Apolyont Lake.

Apolyont used to be called "Apollonia ad Rhyndacum" and is now known as " Golyazi ". The lake's name was Artynias or Appolloniatis. Apollon was the protector of the ancient city and this site was the collony of Miletos in the 5th century BC. Afterwards the city was ruled by Romans, Byzantiniens and Ottomans.

Most villagers are fisherman. Colorful fishing boats and Water lilies are taking attraction in the area.
The lake’s natural beauty has to be experienced early in the morning when fishing boats get ready to carry out their daily routines.
