After breakfast in our hotel, we are starting to discover Black Sea Region.
Ayder offers us an indescribable natural beauty with roads curving between the high mountains, wooden houses nested on the hills, trees giving away all shades of green and a river streaming everlasting at the bottom of the mountains.
A unique structure raised in Fırtına Valley on the rocks in all green; Zilkale.
Palovit Waterfall offers a visual fest in a dense forest pouring down from 15 metres height in Kaçkar National Park.
A blend of Soviet And Europe architecture and a Black Sea beauty, Batumi is fascinating with its evergreen nature on one side and the blueness of Black Sea. We can easily walk everywhere and see the highlights of Batumi as they have been accumulated in one place. Europe Square, Astronomical Clock, Alphabet Tower and artistic Ali and Nina Statue with its gripping love story are some of places to visit. Tasting Georgian foods will leave us good memories in this tour.
Borça and Karagöl are one of the most green areas to be seen in Türkiye. They have a wonderful flora and almost all shades of green. It’s possible to have a walk around the amazing lake with its splendid view and fresh air.
During Roman Empire era, at first Christianity was forbidden and thus the priests who were spreading Christianity, built their temples outside the cities, especially on the slopes of the mountains as they were afraid. Another reason for the monasteries to be built far away from cities is give the chance to believers to leave worldly matters behind and dedicate themselves to spirituality. We will be able to visit Sümela Monastery, the stones of which were carried from a 7-km distance to build it on a steep slope, after a long restoration time.
We are in Trabzon city centre on our last day.
Hagia Sofia Museum, “Hagia” means sacred and “Sofia” wisdom. There are many Hagia Sofias, and the most well-known one is in İstanbul, the next one is in İznik and the third is in Trabzon. Here is an Orthodox church. “Ortho” means correct and “dox” road. “Ortho dox” means someone who accepts the correct one. When Orthodox Christians enter the church, they say “ there will be doom; the good to heaven and the bad to hell”. This structure has an artistic stone work and is rich with stone ornaments and fresco. Atatürk, mansion full of memories of Atatürk, is a place worth to be visited in Trabzon with its beautiful view and a beautiful garden. There is a carpet on the ground in the room on the right, right at the entrance. This carpet was a gift from Shah of Iran to Atatürk. There is an anecdote: Atatürk sends a can of pickles to Shah as an exchange of this carpet. Shah admonishes “I have sent you a worthy Iranian carpet but you are sending me a can of pickles.” Atatürk replies “You sent me the carpet paying from the state treasure but I bought the pickles myself and sent it to you.”
