Create an itinerary including 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."

  • Must visit, it is historical mosque located in a nice place
  • I went to it and expected something unique, but it was ordinary. Also, It is smaller than I thought. If you are looking for something new, you will probably not find it there. I went to the Hagia Sophie of Istanbul and it was much better.
