Rize is blessed with the most beautiful nature that has been preserved over the centuries. The fresh air of Rize has a regenerative effect on you with every breath you take.
Located in the greenest area of Turkey, the Eastern Black Sea Region, Rize is renowned for its unique architecture, delicious cuisine and the hospitality of the local people.
The mild and snowy winters provide for an ideal setting for the practice of winter sports such as skiing and mountaineering. The cool summer months, on the other hand, let one experience four seasons in one day. Rize which receives rainfall in every season is one of the few regions scented with the intense smell of lush nature.
Enshrouded in a fairytale landscape with high mountains, icy rivers and misty highlands getting foggy before sunrise, the city still bears the traces of village life.
Furthermore, Rize has a rich variety of natural and cultural assets to offer such as the Firtina Stream, wooden houses, corn bread or knitted booties.
