Day 1: Batumi - Trabzon (Turkey) - Batumi
In the morning, arrival to Trabzon (Turkey). 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, from the outset, as a mosque.
Ataturk palace is located within a small pine grove of Sopuksu County. The palace was founded in the early 20th century. Ataturk lived in this palace during his visit in 1914 and 1917. After his death, the palace was decorated with furniture of Trabzon Municipality, restored as Ataturk Museum, where the leader of the state, wrote his memoirs in 1917. Return to Batumi.
