Trip Planner: Europe / Turkey / Turkish Black Sea Coast / Trabzon Province / Trabzon / Trabzon Hagia Sophia Museum
Originally an Orthodox church the Ottomans turned into a mosque, Trabzon Hagia Sophia Museum features notable floor mosaics and ceiling frescoes. The building still operates as a mosque, and some of the artwork has been covered up by the authorities. Many of the best frescoes have been damaged over the ages, but the complex remains an excellent example of Byzantine architecture well worth your attention. Stop by the garden cafe to find out just why the locals love eating "kaymak" and "kaygana."

Trabzon Hagia Sophia Museum Reviews
Ayasofya Camii tadilatta. Ancak yine de görülmeye değer ve etrafındaki gümüşçü dükkânları da öyle. Meydan'a çok uzak olmayan bu yerde harika bir çay bahçesi de var.

There is also a wonderful tea garden in this place, which is not far from the square. You can also enjoy a view of the Black Sea with its warm, fresh and steamy tea.
Eylül 2018 sonunda Doğu Karadeniz Tur programımız kapsamında ziyaret ettik, mimarisi ve konumu mükemmel. İç kubbe ve duvarlardaki freskler biraz zarar görmüş olsalarda hala iyi durumdalar.

The frescoes in the inner dome and walls are still in good condition. The large space ceiling in the centre is separated by a suspended ceiling and is currently being used as a mosque. The Ship shapes and writings engraved on the walls indicate that this church is a very important and sacred structure among sailors.
From the magnificent and important historical places, you find a lot of designs, drawings and icons telling us the story of yesterday. Its location is wonderful and delightful
Only managed to see the outside. It was under refurbishment. Worth a visit.
