Black Sea: general information
The Black Sea is located almost halfway between the equator and the North Pole. It enters the Atlantic Ocean basin and connects with the Mediterranean through the Bosphorus and Dardanelles and the Sea of Marmara. On the other hand, from the Black Sea you can get to the Sea of Azov through the Kerch Strait. The region has a huge number of resorts for every taste; the water temperature in the Black Sea is suitable for swimming for four to six months a year.
The location of the sea determines its climate - continental. But some parts of the coast, which are protected from northern winds by mountains, are in a subtropical climate zone. These places include the coast of the Caucasus and the southern coast of Crimea. This is most vividly expressed in the Yalta region, where a mountain range that closes the city from three sides creates a unique microclimate.
The Black Sea is characterized by southwestern winds, which bring humid, but also warm, air masses from the Mediterranean. This leads to the fact that summers in all Black Sea resorts are hot and dry, winters are warm and humid enough, and the water warms up quickly enough.
Average air temperatures on the Black Sea coast vary depending on the latitude of a particular resort. The warmest is the coast of the Caucasus, in the region of Georgian Batumi. It is warm enough in Abkhazia, Krasnodar Territory of Russia and in the southern part of Crimea.
The waters of the Black Sea are generally warm and do not freeze in winter. A comfortable swimming temperature is established in May-June in the south and in the second half of June on the northern coast. During the peak season, the water temperature in the Black Sea can reach 27-28 degrees. The sea cools down for a long time, in some areas you can swim even in November.
Some areas of the Black Sea coastline are characterized by such phenomena as “runaway» - winds of a certain direction carry away the warm upper layers into the open sea, and cold waters rise in their place. This can lead to the fact that in summer the water temperature can drop by ten degrees in a few hours.
The beaches on the Black Sea are very diverse - from pebble to sandy.
The Black Sea cannot be called absolutely calm. There are often severe storms, and some areas are even considered dangerous for navigation.
