Trabzon is one of the major cities of Turkey and the biggest one in the Eastern Black Sea region. Its population is over 870 thousands
(2016) spreading out over 4,663 km2 area. Due to the rainy climate, even in the summer season, it became a home for green forests and
mountains with many rivers and highlands. There are major roads connecting Trabzon to other cities, a busy harbor for international
shipping traffic in the Black Sea, and an international airport. The city is famous for fishing, football team, and the Sumela Monastery.
The Byzantines discovered the significance to Trabzon from a military point of view. During the reign of Emperor Justinian in the 6th century,
the city walls were thoroughly repaired and extended. A road from Trabzon to Persia was paved. Huts for defense were built at bends and
effort was put to establish Christianity so that the tribe Can, the dwellers along the road would be obedient. Aqueducts of Saint Eugenius were built.
In the 8th century the Muslim Arab armies entered Anatolia and came down to Trabzon, invading the area surrounding the citadel, were they saw
hazel nuts for the first time. In the 9th century the Muslim Turkish armies started coming to the Trabzon area and outer part of the citadel went
under the sovereignty of the Muslim Turks. Greeks were still inside defending the citadel. It is in this period that construction of the Saint Ann
Church in the Ayvasil district was completed.
