The Caspian Sea
The Caspian Sea is the largest lake in the world that is between Europe and Asia. The Caspian Sea is pretty well-known for its oil industries and is a huge source of energy. It has so many animal species, including the Caspian seal and sturgeons, which make the best Caviar in the world. The coast provides areas for many migratory birds as well, such as flamingoes, geese, ducks, gulls, terns, and beautiful swans. So if you visit by the time they already migrated there, then you can make a mesmerizing memory by this scenery. The Caspian Sea also has salty water with sandy shores, which is one of the reasons why it is called a sea rather than a lake, but those are the facts that make it as perfect as other seas for the summertime trips.
Believe it or not, the Caspian coastline owns the best climate. The fresh air that is produced by millions of trees is brought from Alborz mountain by the cool breeze. The Alborz Mountain Range forests create a chill and pleasant weather by the beach, which makes tourists’ trips more joyful. During the hot summer days, a chilly breeze from the furthest part of the woods and mountains is all you need. Depending on the season that you decide to travel to this side of the Caspian Sea, the climate situation differs, but you should know that any time you visit here, you will have the best times of your life.
