A half day of exploring Trabzon.
Come explore the city of Trabzon, a gateway for the merchants of the neighboring regions throughout history due to its strategic position on the Silk Road and shoreline of the Black Sea.
Your first stop is the St. Sophia Museum, a former church that is also a good example of late Byzantine architecture with its history dating back to the 13th century. The museum displays a combined taste of Byzantine and Ottoman art.
Next, you will explore the oldest building in Trabzon to have been built originally to serve as a mosque, Gulbahar Hatun Mosque. Built by the orders of Selim Yavuz as dedicated to his mother whose tomb also lies here, the mosque is considered to be holy and the most exquisite mosque in the town.
