Breakfast. Trabzon was founded in the VII century BC by Greeks from Sinop. In ancient times it was called Trebizond, probably due to its shape, reminiscent of a table (in Greek: "meal"), or in connection with the shape of the mountains protecting it. Having a beautiful nature, Trabzon is also famous for its historical monuments. A remarkable monument of culture of Trabzon is the Cathedral of St. Sophia (XIII c.). At the beginning of XVII century the cathedral was converted into a mosque, and in 1959, after the restoration it became a museum. Trabzon preserved a great number of monuments of Islamic architecture. Gyulbahar Hatun Mosque and the tomb remind us of the princess Comnenus, who became the wife of Sultan Bayezid II, returned with his son (later Selim I the Terrible) in Trabzon as a vicar of Sultan. Gyulbahar Hatun Mosque - is the first building in Trabzon, that was constracted as a mosque from the begining. Most mosques are former Greek temples. There is also a former Armenian church.
