Lake
“With its lakeside mosque and forested mountains that recall Switzerland, the 'hidden valley' of Uzungöl (Long Lake) remains idyllic, There are currently over 2000 rooms here, catering to a growing number of visitors from the Gulf States. A flurry of recent development, including a retaining wall against the lake, makes it feel a little artificial compared with much of the Kaçkars further east, but it makes a good base for hikes in the Soğanlı Mountains and to the tiny lakes around Demirkapı in the Haldizen Mountains. Summer weekends get very busy, so try to visit during the week. ”

Food
“Trabzon's one of the most popular dishes is Pita (We say "Pide"). There is a lots of types of it like a ground beef Pita, cheese Pita, ground beef and eggs Pita etc. A Trabzon Pita (Pide) is a delicious flatbread pizza. Most likely natives in Trabzon eat it for breakfast. To me is not just for breakfast as well.”
