Description

The area of the Caspian Sea is 371 thousand square km, which is more than the Sea of Azov and is equal to the areas of the Black and Baltic Seas. The deepest mark in the Caspian Sea is 1025 meters. It is considered the largest closed water body on Earth and the largest closed lake. The names of the sea are associated with the "Caspian" tribe that lived in these parts in the 1st millennium BC. About 70 names of the Caspian Sea went among different tribes, such as the Hyrcan Sea, the Khvalyn Sea, the Khazar Sea, etc.

The flora and fauna of the Caspian water area consists of 500 species of plants and more than 1,800 species of fish, birds and animals, as well as 50 islands with a total area of 350 thousand square km About 130 rivers flow into the Caspian Sea.

The Caspian Sea washes the borders of 5 states: Kazakhstan, Russia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Iran, but the longest coastline is on the territory of Kazakhstan. In the western part of Kazakhstan on the Caspian coast there are the largest cities where travelers can stay - Aktau and Atyrau.

In these resort towns, part of the coast is rocky, but there are also sandy beaches. In summer it is hot here: at midday +40 and even at night the temperature rarely drops below +27. In winter, the northern part of the Caspian Sea is covered with drifting ice floes, among which you can see seals.

At the same time in the south of the Caspian Sea there are blue, non-freezing waters inhabited by wild boars, porcupines, leopards and tigers.

We offer holidays on the Caspian Sea for every taste: from staying in a comfortable hotel to adventures with tents!
