Mentioned in the memoirs of Marco Polo and Evliya Çelebi, Trabzon, with its cultural and natural riches is a wonderful city to visit at any time of the year. The city, which was initially named as Trazepos, lies in beautiful country side between the Black Sea coast and the mountains Zigane. It has lived under the reign of many civilisations throughout the centuries and so is rich with culture and history.
The festivities held within this city, famous for its folk dances and the use of its traditional instrument, the fiddle, provide great entertainment.
Trabzon attracts the attention primarily for its silver and gold processing and is famous for its specially designed bracelets called "Trabzon Bileziği."
Blessed with all the shades that green has to offer, the city invites visitors to discover its natural wonders!
