Top Aerial Views of Turkey's Black Sea Region


The Sky Is The Limit


Contributor Ezgierol used a DJI Phantom drone to create this stunning aerial video of Turkey's Kaçkar Mountains.  These are the easternmost of the Pontic Mountains which run along much of Turkey's northern Black Sea coastline.  The video includes shots of Kaçkar Daği, the highest mountain in the entire Pontic range, which has an altitude of about 4k meters 9just under 13k ft.) above sea level.  Most of the range lies within the province of Artvin.


A Castle Among Clouds and Mist


Zilkale Castle lies in Turkey's Rize province in the northeastern part of the country, in its Black Sea region.  The medieval castle, which has a storied history involving multiple kingdoms, sits on a giant cliff overlooking a small river.  It's a prime tourist attraction in this part of Turkey.  Contributor Skaty was able to fly his drone over this magnificent 15th century structure on a day when it was enshrouded in mist. As you'll see from the video, the results are simply spectacular.  


The Castle of Boyabat

Alp Karagulle

Contributor and drone pilot Alp Karagulle created this amazing aerial video of one of the most spectacular castles in Turkey's Black Sea region in the north of the country.  It's called Boyabat Castle, and it's in the Sinop province which is situated more or less in the middle of Turkey's Black Sea coastline.  The castle dates to the Antiquity, and was rebuilt as control of the area shifted first to the Roman, then the Byzantine, and finally the Ottoman Empires.

Rize Province lies in the northeastern province of Turkey, along the Black Sea.  Contributor Secoko used a drone to aerially film the Ağaran Şelalesi waterfall, one of the most impressive bits of natural scenery in this part of Turkey.  The falls lie a bit inland from the Black Sea, due east of the provincial capital Rize.  As you'll see from the video, the cascading water forms beautiful spray patterns against the rocks.  The waterfall is part of a national preserve.

Northern Turkey contains some of the country's most spectacular mountain scenery.  The Pontic Mountains extend along virtually the entire Black Sea coastline, with peaks as high as almost 4k meters (about 13k ft.).  The tallest mountains in this range are the Kaçkar Mountains, which is a subrange towards the eastern end of the main Pontic range.  This video submitted by Turkey Home will give you an aerial tour of these amazing mountains of northeastern Turkey.


A Fantastic Town: Amasra


Contributor Iskenderfilm created this beautiful drone video of the Turkish Black Sea port town of Amasra.  The town is situated in the Bartin province, about a third of the way along the coastline moving west to east.  The video provides bird's eye views of this ancient town, with its red roof buildings.  It also shows how closely the mountains of northern Turkey hold to the Black Sea coast, which form a lovely backdrop for port cities like Amasra.


Uzungöl drone footage in 4K - 2016


Contributor Dronesantana007 created this stunning drone video of a mountain valley in the Trabzon province of northeastern Turkey.  Uzungöl is a lake which was formed by a landslide in the middle of the province, roughl equidistant between the provincial capital Trabzon to the northwest and Rize, the capital of neighboring Rize province, to the northeast.  The lake and the surrounding valley are now major tourist attractions in Turkey's eastern Black Sea region.

Amasya is am important cultural city in Turkey's Black Sea region and is the capital of the province of the same name.   Although the province is part of the officially recognized Black Sea region, it is actually inland from the sea, part of a rough line of provinces which lie to the south of the coastal provinces.  Contributor Alp Karaguelle created this beautiful drone video of this mountainous city, which was used as a training ground for Ottoman princes.


Tortum Waterfall from Turkey


Contributor Skaty created this amazing drone video of Turkey's largest waterfall.  Tortum Waterfall is located in the northeastern corner of the country, in its Black Sea region.  A massive hydroelectric project completed in 1960 drastically reduced the flow of water over the falls, such that it's dry much of the year.  The falls and the lakes which surround it are popular sightseeing destinations in this part of the country.  


Operation Trabzon

OGB - Omer Gokcen

Contributor Omer Gokcen used a DJI Inspire drone to create this aerial view of Turkey's Trabzon province.  The province lies near the eastern end of Turkey's Black Sea region, two provinces from the border with Georgia.  The city of Trabzon itself is nearly 3,000 years old and is believed to be the oldest seaport on Turkey's Black Sea coast.  As with most of the country's Black Sea region, the province is mountainous almost to the shoreline.  


Zil Kale (Castle)


Contributor Jesus_tr created this epic pull-out drone shot from Zil Castle, one of the most important landmarks in Turkey's Black Sea region.  It's situated in the Çamlıhemşin District of Rize, which is the next-to-easternmost of the Black Sea provinces.  The medieval castle overlooks Firtina creek, which you'll see in the video.  The castle played an important role in the maintenance of Ottoman power in the region.  This was shot with a DJI Spark drone.
