City of Monasteries " MACKA "

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Maçka is a district of Turkey's Trabzon Province in its Black Sea region.  It is best known for its three Greek Orthodox monasteries.  In this drone video by enghasanali, you will get aerial views of the three landmarks: Sumela, Kustul, and Vazalon.  Sumela is the most recognizable; built into the side of one of the Pontic Mountains, it's one of the most well-known spots in northern Turkey.    The other two monasteries are not yet restored and are much harder to access, although there are plans in the works to restore them as well.
