Iznik (formerly Nicaea) in Turkey is situated on the eastern tip of Lake Iznik, to the south of the city of Izmit. It is the country’s fifth largest town and is 85 km from the city of Bursa.  It has a mostly temperate climate with wet winters.
Nicaea was the site of the first (325 AD) and seventh (787 AD) Ecumenical councils. It is also the place of origin of the Nicene Creed. The medieval city walls are still intact, though many other monuments, including the Senate where the Nicene Creed was prepared, are in ruins. It is regarded by Christians as the third ‘holy city’ after Jerusalem and the Vatican.
 
With a population of about 20,000 people, Iznik with its rich history and historical structures is an important tourist attraction in Turkey. It is renowned for its ceramic tiles.

Reviews Iznik

Sue Clayton
Overall rating 5
Overall Guide : The town appears like a beautiful lady in her declining years. It is not looked after, the beautiful parks and lake surrounds are full of litter and weeds. Such a shame as it could be a very beautiful place again... more if efforts were made to tidy it up. From a concerned tourist.
Not to be missed Old City , Lake surrounds
