In the times of ancient Greece it was known as Thospitis Lacus, or Arsissa Lacus, which is derived from the Urartian city of Van, or ancient Chauon. Lake Van (Van Golu in Turkish) is the largest lake in Turkey and the second largest in the Middle East. It's also the biggest sodium water lake in the world. The lake lies on the high grounds of Eastern Anatolian region near the border with Iran.

The Greek Orthodox Monastery of the Virgin Mary, better known as Sumela Monastery, 46km south of Trabzon, is one of the Black Sea coast's historical highlights. Founded in the 4th century AD, it was abandoned in 1923 after the creation of the Turkish Republic and the 'exchange of populations'. Its highlight is the main church, with damaged but stunningly coloured frescoes both inside and out. Undergoing extensive renovation at the time of research, it was due to reopen in spring 2017.

Büyükada, the largest of Istanbul's Princes Islands (map), is the most-visited, and for good reason: it has the most to see and do because of its size (5.4 square km, 1334 acres).

If possible, schedule your visit for a weekday. On Saturday and Sunday in summer the ferries, the streets, the restaurants, the cafés— everything's super-crowded (which is nothing new—see the photo from 1943 at the lower right corner of this page).
