HOPA

The north-eastern end of the Black Sea        Population: 17,500

HopaIf you're heading along the Black Sea coast to Georgia there's an outside chance you'll need to spend night in Hopa. Otherwise this is not a place worth visiting with not a single building of architectural distinction.

After Hopa there's nothing left of Turkey, just the border at Sarp.

Sleeping

The better places to stay are on the outskirts of the city centre. Avoid the shabby places in the centre at all costs.

Transport info

Half-hourly minibuses leave Rize for Hopa from the town-centre terminal near the sea.

Onward dolmuşes to Borçka and Artvin leave from an unimaginably grim dolmuş stand on the edge of town. If possible catch a through Artvin Ekspres bus from Rize or one of the Laz towns to avoid having to linger in such squalor. This is where you get the dolmuş back to Rize too unfortunately.
