Once in the city there are a few interesting attractions that you’ll want to visit but a lot of the place’s pull comes from its natural beauty, as evidenced by the Uzungol lake.
This mountain lake is situated at an altitude of 1090 meters and is a kilometer longs, half a kilometer wide and fifteen meters deep. A part of its beauty comes from the fact that the lake is surrounded by forests and the local village is very picturesque. Trekking through the mountain will have you find other, smaller mountain lakes. This is a great place to visit, especially during the summer when you can take full advantage of the hiking paths.
A more traditional type of attraction is the Aya Sofya Museum which used to be a rather beautiful church which got converted into a mosque first and then it became a museum which also features its own frescoes. The grounds feature a very relaxing and quiet open-air tea garden as well.
One attraction which combines the local natural beauty with man-made creation is the Sumela Monastery. This is a rather spectacular monastery built in the 4th century on the narrow ledge of a steep cliff. The place has gone through some serious restoration efforts recently as it has been vandalized by pretty much every culture in the world, but the Turkish government has stepped in to protect this extraordinary achievement and turn it into a museum.
These are a few of the things that you can see and do in Trabzon so make sure to employ our Trabzon car hire services in order to better experience this city and its surroundings.
