Black Sea Region starts at the northern side of the Bosphorus and ends on the border of Georgia. That region is the most humid and verdant viewed region thanks to the high downfall rates alloted all through the year. The region is highly and widely mountainous terrain and is heavily weald, whereas the highest peaks of the mountains are covered with glacier lakes, and alpine meadows.

In the archaic period, at the start of the first millennium BC, Black Sea Region was called the Pontos Euxine. They had lots of fights with the local “barbarians” and occasionally, as it was in the legendary tale of Jason and the Argonauts. From seventh to fourth centuries BC, the Aegean cities discovered countless colonies. These settlers became the ancestors of almost every modern Black Sea town. This region came into prominence in the world history when a local Pontic king, Mithridates IV Eupator, came close to driving the Roman Empire away from Anatolia. With the expansion of Christianity, relations between original inhabitants and feudal lords barely changed at all.

This region is globally known for the production of hazelnuts, and further eastern part of Rize region has a great many tea plantations. The areas, which are suitable for farming, are sowed or used as grassland. Mild and damp climate of the Black Sea coast makes farming profitable. Zonguldak, which is in the western part of the Black Sea region, is the center of coal mining and heavy industry. The fishing industry makes up an importart portion of the economies of the cities in that region.

During the summer time, you can also enjoy the beaches. This region is suitable for visiting all-year-round.
