A Pleasant Journey in the Black Sea Region of Turkey

We all know that Istanbul has a great charm and Turkey’s southern coast is exactly a holiday paradise. So, what about the shores of the Black Sea? This region contains great cultural and historical accumulation, heavenly beautiful beaches and incredibly delicious cuisine. Let’s take a closer look at Black Sea Region of Turkey with beautiful photos!

 

 

 

 

 

Though the overwhelming majority is Turkish, there are some Laz people and Georgian people living in the eastern Black Sea Region, and unlike both ethnic groups in neighboring Republic of Georgia (where they are Georgian Orthodox Christians), are Sunni Muslim.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those who dislike the heat and humidity of the summer in the Mediterranean and Aegean regions of Turkey, escape to the plateaux of the mountains in the Black Sea region which are almost permanently cloudy and receive immense amounts of rain and are very attractive with rich flora and fauna, forests,crater lakes, waterfalls, rivers, streams, mountain and nature walk, rafting, canoe and winter sports, hunting and fishing, grass skiing, healing water and local dishes.
