A bustling modern city with a somewhat relaxed sea-side feel, Trabzon's architecture is an interesting mixture of old and new.

Trabzon is a city on the Black Sea coast of northeastern Turkey and the capital of Trabzon Province. Trabzon, located on the historical Silk Road, became a melting pot of religions, languages and culture for centuries and a trade gateway to Iran in the southeast and the Caucasus to the northeast. Trabzon has a number of tourist attractions, some of them dating back to the times of the ancient empires that once existed in the region. In the city itself, one can find a hub of shops, stalls and restaurants surrounding the Meydan, a square in the center of the city, which includes a tea garden. Its main attractions are Hagia Sophia Church, Trabzon Castle, Trabzon Museum, and the Trabzon Bazaar.
