About Trabzon

The former byzantine capital of Trabzon lies on the Black Sea coast of north-eastern Turkey. Situated on a table-like promontory above the harbour, the city's antique heart is characterised by bustling cobblestone streets and ancient wooden houses billowing aromatic smoke. Surrounding 'Meydan', the central square which includes a charming tea garden, you'll find shops, stalls and restaurants.

Head outwards from here and you can discover the rickety bazaar district, which sells everything from attractive copper pitchers to silver-blue anchovies - Trabzon's famed speciality. The citadel is one of the oldest remains here and the well-preserved 13th century Hagia Sophia Church and the Ortahisar Faith Mosque are both great examples of the stunning Byzantine architecture of the era.

Outside of the city is the beautifully situated Sumela Monastery. Nestled into the side of the rocks in Maçka's Altýndere valley, it offers breathtaking views over forests and streams.
