Backed by the steep Pontic Mountains, Trabzon is blessed with fertile soil and a climate that blankets the countryside with dense forests and subtropical flowers. It's a beautiful setting on the Black Sea. The name Trabzon comes from the Greek "trapezous," meaning table, a reference to the flat hilltop that the walled Old City occupies. While there are plenty of historical buildings in town, in particular Hagia Sophia and Saint Eugene churches, the most stunning religious site is the nearby Sumela Monastery, which dates to the 6th century.


Try the spicy lamb meatballs, deep-dish cornbread, bean and cabbage soup, and rice pudding.


In the Russian Bazaar (Avrupali Pazari), look for metal urns, leather products, jewelry, silk goods and Russian dolls.
