Trabzon

Trabzon is a city on the Black Sea coast of northeast Turkey. Built as a church in the 13th century, the city’s Hagia Sophia has served as a hospital and a museum, but today is a mosque with restored ceiling frescoes. The Trabzon Museum, set in an early-20th-century mansion with rococo and art-nouveau elements, traces the city’s history with archaeological and ethnographic exhibitions.
