Oldukça iyi korunmuş bir tarihi yapı. Bilgilendirici yazılar çok faydalı. Keşke fresklere daha az zarar verilseymiş. Muhakkak görülmeli..A well-preserved historic buildings. Informative articles are very useful. I wish there was less damage to frescoes verilsey. Surely it should be allowed.show original
Great nice place. Amazing views. You can get to here by minibus from the central Ataturk square.
This place (former church, now a museum, functioning as a mosque) was a disappointment. Some reviewer wrote that it's smaller but just as impressive as Hagya Sophia in Istanbul. There is no parameter whereby this could possibly be a correct statement. The building is indeed small but that's not everything. It sits atop a pleasant hill with views on the Black Sea that are less pleasant. You get to observe the degree of urban destruction very clearly, including the two motorways that separate Trabzon from the water. Around the hill itself is a conglomerate of decaying council buildings, hardly a pleasant sight. Whereas Istanbul's masterpiece dates back to the 6th century no less, the one in Trabzon was built in the 13th century. This is no small difference. The reliefs and the frescoes are in a very bad state and I challenge you to recognise any of the scenes depicted without expert help. Finally, the place is used as a mosque, which means the central area is reserved for worship. Also, they have put a cloth cover under the dome for some reason making the frescoes there invisible. Conclusion: don't come here expecting to visit something remotely as impressive as Istambul's Hagya Sophia and you'll be all right.

Camiye çevrilmesiyle daha rahat gezebildiğimiz enfes mimari yapı.
Don't let size deceive you. The Hagia Sophia of Trabzon is not as large as the one in Istanbul but it is just as impressive. To enhance your visit, I recommend a good guide or history book. I wrote an article about my visit and it is here.
