The city of Trabzon was founded by the Greeks in the 7th century BC, even though indigenous people already lived there. When the Byzantine empre took over, Trabzon became the capital of Pontos – which was the name of the region around the northeast part of Turkey. The city survived 8 years after the fall of the Byzantine empire and then it too fell to the Ottoman Turks.
Trabzon was always an important port because it was one of the only ports on the Black Sea. This was the main supply line of goods through the east side of the country and up in to Asia.
Some of the old walls that used to surround the city still exist today. There are a few Byzantine churches in the old part of the city, although they are difficult to get to.
