The region is known for its treks and sport activities you can do in the mountains. With the rivers, waterfalls and streams you can go canoeing or rafting. During the winter ski stations open in the mountains. The most famous attraction in the mountains is the Sumela monastery. This monastery is handing on a cliff and is really hard to access. Sumela is close to the capital of the region, Trabzon, a sweet coast city. On the coast of the Black Sea you will find the Amasya and Safranbolu villages with whitewashed ottoman riverside houses, which today are part of the UNESCO programme.
