Trabzon Hagia Sophia Museum, Trabzon

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."

  • It is a very spiritual mosque. The old church's painting are still standing on the walls. It was an unforgettable experience.
  • An old church with a great view of the sea! A nice place to visit while you are near by Trabzon.
  • Old small orthodox church with beautiful paint on the roof walls. It is converted to mosque now. Small museum inside to explore the paint. It has also a beautiful sea view.
  • I think one of the most important sightseeing in trabzon is this place I definitely recommend you to see this place
  • 800 years of faithful history going on live! Gotta be here to feel it
