Trabzon, historically known as Trebizond is a city on the Black Sea coast of northeastern Turkey and the capital of Trabzon Province. Explore hidden gems such as Kackar Daglari Milli Parki and Surmene Camburnu Tabiat Parki. Change things up with these side-trips from Trabzon: Tirebolu (Tirebolu Kalesi & Tirebolu Belediye Plaji). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Sumela Monastery, steep yourself in history at Gulbahar Hatun Tomb, appreciate the extensive heritage of Boztepe, and look for all kinds of wild species at Hacka Yaylasi.

A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Step off the beaten path and head to Eriklitepe Tabiat Parki and Gulhane Park. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Eminonu Square, take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and pause for some photo ops at Sultanahmet Square.
