Life in the region
Turkey's location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia makes the country multicultural. You can see the traces of both East and West cultures.
Çayeli is situated in a district of Rize which lies to the eastern part of the Black Sea, located between the Pontic Mountains and 100 km west of Batum/Georgia. Rize is blessed with the most beautiful nature that has been preserved over the centuries. 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. The region is popular with its outdoor sports such as rafting, trekking and sailing.
Furthermore, Rize has a rich variety of natural and cultural assets to offer such as the Firtina Stream, Ayder Plateau.
Although it is located in eastern Turkey, it is close to the airport in Trabzon and it is easy to access every part of Turkey.
