Trabzon, historically known as Trebizond is a city on the Black Sea coast of northeastern Turkey and the capital of Trabzon Province. Explore hidden gems such as Kackar Daglari Milli Parki and Karaca Cave. Get some cultural insight at Sumela Monastery and Bedrama Castle. Get out of town with these interesting Trabzon side-trips: Hemsin Organik Vadisi (in Rize), Limni Golu Tabiat Parki (in Gumushane) and Tirebolu Kalesi (in Tirebolu). There's much more to do: admire the verdant scenery at Hidirnebi Yaylasi, contemplate the long history of Atatürk Köşkü, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ickale Camii, and take in the dramatic natural features at Ortahisar.
