Trabzon, historically known as Trebizond is a city on the Black Sea coast of northeastern Turkey and the capital of Trabzon Province. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kackar Daglari Milli Parki and Surmene Camburnu Tabiat Parki. Venture out of the city with trips to Tirebolu (Tirebolu Kalesi & Tirebolu Belediye Plaji). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Sumela Monastery, contemplate the long history of Atatürk Köşkü, and look for all kinds of wild species at Hacka Yaylasi.

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Trabzon trip itinerary planning website .

You can fly from Istanbul to Trabzon in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of shuttle and flight; or drive. In August in Trabzon, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 27°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
