Zıraat Parkı

Zıraat Parkı Review

Rize, 75 km (47 miles) east of Trabzon and the capital of the Black Sea's tea-growing region, sits above a small bay below the foothills of the lush Pontic Mountains. There's not much to do here, though you can stop for a glass of the local brew in the hilltop Zıraat Parkı, a botanical garden near the town's western entrance. There's a small kiosk in the parking lot that sells gift packs of tea.
