Trabzon

Trabzon is a charming city on the Black Sea coast of north-eastern Turkey and the capital of Trabzon Province. Astride the historic trade route between Iran and the continent of Europe, the city has many architectural landmarks from Byzantine times, including the church of the Virgin of the Golden Head and the church of St Eugenius—both now mosques—and Hagia Sophia (church of the Holy Wisdom). Near Trabzon is the 14th-century monastery of Sumela. The population of the city is approximately 480,000.
