Where to stay in Trabzon
The Turkish city of Trabzon is the country's biggest in the eastern Black Sea region and features many mountains, rivers and greenery.
Getting around the center of Trabzon is possible by foot with most of its historical sights lying in an area of around 1.5km by 500m. Among these attractions are central Meydan Square in the east, the bazaar quarter in the middle and the historic walled city towards the west. However, while the historic attractions are close by getting around them does involve negotiating a number of steps and inclines so it pays to plan a route accordingly. The most notable locations outside the central zone are the Hagia Sophia to the west and the Boztepe Tea Garden overlooking the city towards the southeast. To get to these locations it is best to use a bus or taxi or you could consider car rental.
If dining out, it is worth checking out a few restaurants at the northern side of Meydan Square with most menus revolving around traditional meat or fish dishes, while fast-food outlets and kebab shops can be found at the western end of the square.

Large Turkish city on the Black Sea. Very busy with active markets and mostly locked internet - buy coffee at a cafe to get the code.
Great place 2 go I was there 4 years ago it was great :)
I visited the Soğanlı Mountain, the Long Lake Plateau, and we ate a nice fish in the plateau :) The 2800-meter high bulbous mountains were chilling and thrilled. I also had the chance to tour the CATU. But the most impressive place is Sümelamanaman ...
