The green mosque mainly refers to the inside. The nearby tomb is much greener. However, the inside of the mosque is more versatile. Every wall deserves special attention. And the atmosphere of course is totally different from the tomb as well.

For me, the top attraction in Bursa is the Yesil Türbe, the mausoleum of the fifth Ottoman Sultan, Mehmed I (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ye%C5%9Fil_T%C3%BCrbe). The incredible green (blue?) tiled tomb, the tranquil environment is a must to see, if you visit Bursa.

The mosque and tiles itself are quite nice and worth the trip. But the surrounding are offers not many choices for places to eat or grab a coffee. Plan to have your lunch or dinner in a more central area after you visit the mosque.
