The black sea is an inland between southeastern Europe that is actually a distant arm of the Atlantic Ocean by way.

There is a net inflow of seawater through the Bosporus, 200 km³ per year. There is an inflow of freshwater from the surrounding areas, especially central and middle-eastern Europe, totalling 320 km³ per year. The most important river entering the Black Sea is the Danube. The Black Sea has an area of 422.000 m and a maximum depth of 2210 m.

It's quite beautiful, but not very cheap, there are hotels and inns for every budget and taste. There are clean parts but you can also find garbage in some places. People would sometimes rather choose the Bulgarian part of the coast of the Black Sea, it's cheaper, they say.
