The Black Sea is an intercontinental sea that connects with the Mediterranean to the south through the Bosphorus and Dardanelles. Its water is low in salinity – only 18 ‰ and this, along with its moderate summer temperature (22-24 ° C) makes it particularly pleasing for bathing. The tides in the Black Sea are insignificant. There are no strong watercourses or dangerous animal and plant species that pose a serious threat to the health and life of tourists.
With its climatic features, this area occupies an intermediate position between the gentle Mediterranean resorts to the south and the cool resorts to the north, combining their best elements. The average annual air temperature is around 12 ° C. The average temperature in July is 22-23 ° C, but the sea breeze creates a feeling of freshness even during the hottest summer days. The season with air temperature above 18 ° C lasts 100-110 days in the north to 120 days on the southern Black Sea coast, and the water temperature remains above 18 ° C for 130-140 days (from the end of May to the end of October).
