Trip Planner: Europe / Turkey / Turkish Black Sea Coast / Trabzon Province / Trabzon / Trabzon Hagia Sophia Museum
Originally an Orthodox church the Ottomans turned into a mosque, Trabzon Hagia Sophia Museum features notable floor mosaics and ceiling frescoes. The building still operates as a mosque, and some of the artwork has been covered up by the authorities. Many of the best frescoes have been damaged over the ages, but the complex remains an excellent example of Byzantine architecture well worth your attention. Stop by the garden cafe to find out just why the locals love eating "kaymak" and "kaygana."

Trabzon Hagia Sophia Museum reviews
Nice Museum/Mosque. Very easy to get to as just off the main road. Hardly anyone there and had some nice items. The paintings are quite nice, although in the outer areas, have been badly chipped... more »
We were only able to see thw outside as it is currently closed for renovation and is actively being worked on. We hope to return in future see it in depth. more »
The building itself is beautiful. But the garden around is in total mess. Renovation must be finished quickly. And I wish there was little more respect to the history of the city.
Currently Under Renovation. Open for visitors but from outside. I visited the place almost a year ago, at that time it was also open for Prayers. The paintings or mosaics are visible within a room, still open for visitors. Some are inside, well preserved but were covered with curtains as such art is not allowed within a Mosque during prayers.
