Abstract

The Black Sea washes the coastline of Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine. The total length of the coastline is 3,400 km. The foothills of the Greater and Small Caucasus, as well as the Pontic mountains come right up to the east and south parts of the Black Sea. On the west the Black Sea coast lowlands gradually change into hilly and plateau-like plains which toward the midst of the continent are set against mountain systems (East Carpathians, South Carpathians, Hills of Old Planin, Rodopes, etc.)
