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."

  • An outstanding place, highly recommended, entry is free of charge Good place to take photos There is a basement car parking ( we faced some difficulties in parking as the parking garage is too small )
  • Must visit place in Trabzon. No museum found there but the building and frescoes inside are marvellous. Also nice sea view. Women are allowed inside with covered head, they offer shawls at the entrance.
