This Black Sea port was once part of the grand Silk Road trade route through Turkey. Today, tourists in Trabzon walk where camel caravans trod. Visit the Byzantine Sumela Monastery, which clings to a cliff overlooking a deep gorge, or see the stalactite-filled Karaca Cave. And don’t forget to try the famed kuymak cheese dish, made from Black Sea butter. Leave your luggage in wooden cottages by the water or luxury suites in the city – these are the best hotels in Trabzon, bookable on Culture Trip.
