History of Trabzon
Trabzon, located in the northeastern part of Turkey along the coast of the Black Sea, boasts a rich and varied history that stretches back thousands of years.
Ancient History and Roman Period: Trabzon was first established by Greek colonists from Miletus in the 8th century BC, who named it Trapezus, meaning “table” in ancient Greek, due to the table-like central hill between two rivers where the initial settlement was situated. It became an important part of the trade route known as the Silk Road due to its strategic location. The city later came under the control of the Persian Empire, before becoming a part of the Roman Empire.
Byzantine Era: With the partition of the Roman Empire, Trabzon became a part of the Byzantine Empire. During the Byzantine period, it served as a key trading post and military outpost. The most significant event during this period was the establishment of the Empire of Trebizond in 1204. This empire was a Byzantine breakaway state formed after the Fourth Crusade sacked Constantinople. The Empire of Trebizond maintained its independence for over 250 years before falling to the Ottomans in 1461.
Ottoman Era: Under Ottoman rule, Trabzon retained its importance as a trading hub. It underwent significant development and modernization while preserving its multicultural character. The city served as a melting pot of religions and cultures, housing Muslim, Christian, and Jewish communities.
Modern Period: In the early 20th century, following the end of World War I and during the Turkish War of Independence, Trabzon came under the administration of several different nations. However, in 1923, with the Treaty of Lausanne, Trabzon was incorporated into the Republic of Turkey. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of the Turkish Republic, visited the city several times and stayed at the Atatürk Köşkü, which is now a museum.
Today, Trabzon is known for its cultural and historical sites, as well as its natural beauty, including highlands, lakes, and forests. It serves as a significant economic and cultural hub in the Black Sea region. Its historical legacy can still be seen in its architecture, including Byzantine churches and Ottoman-era mosques and marketplaces.
Whether it’s the grandeur of the Ayasofya Museum (Hagia Sophia), the bustling markets, or the natural splendor of the surrounding landscapes, the history of Trabzon offers a fascinating look into the city’s past and its continual evolution.
