The Verdant Black Sea

The vibrant green of Turkey’s lush, humid Black Sea surprises those who might imagine the country to be nothing but barren steppe. The Black Sea highlands are adorned with meadows full of colourful wildflowers and verdant forests, painting the slopes an exuberant green. The humid and foggy weather gives way to brilliant sunshine and oxygen-rich, fresh mountain air as one ascends from the coastal areas up to the mountains.


The geographical formation of this part of Turkey is quite different from that of western Anatolia, where mountain ridges radiate from the central plateau like the fingers of a hand.
