    High plateaus- A Life Style

    by voyageur2 Written Sep 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Uzung��l, Caykara

    Favorite thing: Traditionaly, Eastern Black Sea People have strong rural roots. City dwellers look for an opportunity to go to thier villages and plateaus while they have some free time. Cars and buses fills mountain roads in summertime mostly. Plateaus are important festival places. Watching and joining those activities will be right way of learning more about region.

    Fondest memory: I visited eastern districts of Trabzon including Surmene and Of. And I can never forget crystal waters of Camburnu Beach in Surmene and tea gardens in Of.

    Walk from Ataturk Alani to the old town

    by maykal Updated Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Old houses in the ravines

    Favorite thing: I have to admit, Lonely Planet did well to suggest the walk from Ataturk Alani to the older quarters of was a walk I did often and got to know well, each time taking a different route. You can either take Uzun Sokagi, a narrow but long street with all the trendy shops, or take the route through the markets...either way, you'll end up in Ortahisar, the oldest part of Trabzon. It is reached on either side by bridges across a ravine...down below in the ravines are picturesque but slightly seedy residential quarters...the only problem I had was finding a road down into them! Ortahisar isn't huge, and it is difficult to get lost, but the more I walked around this area, the more I came to love Trabzon. It isn't a city designed for walking, as the streets are full of cars, and the centre is quite a distance from the old quartes, plus it is a surprisingly hilly city, but for me, walking is the best way to discover Trabzon.

    by harunakpinar Updated Aug 25, 2002

    Favorite thing: GANITA,
    Nature possessed an entirely different beauty in the Trabzon of yesterday; Ganita, with its crystal-clear sea, was a source of renewal for our love of Trabzon, its gardens were full of orange, pomegranate and fig trees. The classical music played in Meydan Park, accompanied by the voice of Hafýz Burhan, created another world. Now we see that so much of Trabzon's valuable heritage has become a thing of the past. The famous Sümer Cinema survives only in photographs; Suluhan and the Þems Hotel, like many cinemas and precious parts of Trabzon's heritage have been destroyed, leaving behind them nothing but yearning...

    Favorite thing: Run to the hills !
    You must eat 'MIHLAMA' a kind of melted cheese,get the best honey you can ever find (but you have to find the right one, ask to test them, look if the got sugar or not in it !) Vists the Sumela monastry and the mounatins

    Fondest memory: You can easilly bee invited to stay and eat whith local people, great food, very nice vegetation an animal life, great for hiking ( not for climbing except Vercenik wall)
    The hamam called 'termal' in Ayder after one week on the mountains feels great.
