Trabzon, historically known as Trebizond is a city on the Black Sea coast of northeastern Turkey and the capital of Trabzon Province. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Kackar Daglari Milli Parki and Sarikaya Yaylasi. 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, identify plant and animal life at Hacka Yaylasi, and get to know the fascinating history of Boztepe.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Trabzon travel route planning tool .

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Trabzon is an approximately 8-hour flight. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Jeddah in August, with highs in Trabzon at 32°C and lows at 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Mon) early enough to travel to Istanbul.
