Black Sea is surrounded by six countries, i.e., Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine. It’s quite famous destination for people who like resting at the beach; especially Bulgaria is getting more and more popular.
As you see in today’s picture, the color of the Black Sea is not black. 😉 So why is it called like that?
Well, it’s not really clear and there are many theories about its name. One of them says, that color “black” in some languages refers to the direction “north”, so it’s connected with the location of the Black Sea. But it’s only one of the possibilities.
