Turkey is a unique country in many ways. Tourists are attracted here by the unique oriental flavor, the optimal ratio of price and quality of tourist services and the mild climate. However, one of the main features of Turkey is the presence of four seas washing its shores.

Turkey is a country located simultaneously in Europe and Asia: the country's territories located in different parts of the world are separated by the Bosphorus Strait. At the same time, Turkey is washed simultaneously by four seas: Mediterranean, Black, Aegean and Marmara. The total total length of the coastline of all these seas, passing through the territory of the country, exceeds 8 thousand kilometers.

Black and Mediterranean seas

The Mediterranean Sea is the largest of the seas washing Turkey: its total area is more than 2.5 million square kilometers, and the length of the coastline falling on Turkey is more than one and a half thousand kilometers. It is on the Mediterranean coast that the most famous resorts of the country were formed, including Antalya, Alanya, Kemer, Beldibi and others. Every year they receive thousands of tourists from all over the world and enjoy the well-deserved love of Russians.

The second largest body of water, to which Turkey has access, is the Black Sea: its total area is more than 400 thousand square kilometers, and the length of the coastline is 3400 kilometers. Moreover, about 1600 of them are in Turkey. The Black Sea coast of this country is not as well known to Russian tourists as, for example, the Mediterranean coast. However, there are quite popular resorts here, including Rize, Kurukasile, Samsun, Trabzon, Gerze and others.

Marmara and Aegean Seas

The Aegean Sea is the third largest among the seas washing the shores of Turkey; moreover, it is much smaller than the Black and Mediterranean Seas. Its area reaches 191 thousand square kilometers. Strictly speaking, it is part of the Mediterranean Sea, however, due to its specific characteristics, it is usually distinguished as an independent body of water. So, for example, with the onset of the season, the Aegean Sea warms up much longer than the Mediterranean, so they begin to swim in it much later. Nevertheless, the resorts of the Aegean coast of the country, which include Marmaris, Fethiye, Bodrum, Kusadasi and others, have their loyal connoisseurs.

Finally, the smallest sea available in Turkey is the Marmara Sea: its area is only a little more than 1,000 square kilometers. Unlike the other listed reservoirs, it is completely located on the territory of Turkey, and its coastline reaches about a thousand kilometers. The sea got its unusual name thanks to one of the islands, where marble was mined earlier. Today, the most popular resorts of the Sea of ​​Marmara in Turkey are Yalova, Armutlu, Mudanya and Erdek.
