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 Tirebolu Belediye Plaji and Hacka Yaylasi. Venture out of the city with trips to Tirebolu Kalesi (in Tirebolu) and Sarikaya Yaylasi (in Uzungol). And it doesn't end there: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Surmene Camburnu Tabiat Parki, steep yourself in history at Atatürk Köşkü, take some stellar pictures from Boztepe, and examine the collection at Trabzon Sehir Muzesi.

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Eriklitepe Tabiat Parki and Beyoglu. When in Istanbul, make a side trip to see Delmece Yaylasi in Cinarcik, approximately 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: walk around Gulhane Park, see the interesting displays at Rahmi M. Koc Museum, appreciate the extensive heritage of Sultanahmet District, and take a stroll through Eminonu Square.
