According to abbreviationfinder.org, the cradle of civilizations, the apple of discord and the oldest trade routes – all this is the “sea in the middle of the earth”, whose waves wash the shores of 22 states, most of which have managed to benefit directly from this remarkable neighborhood for tourism. It is on the numerous coasts of the Mediterranean Sea that the most famous world resorts are located, which are annually visited by millions of vacationers from all over the world. The countries of two continents – Africa and Eurasia, as well as numerous islands and archipelagos provide all the conditions for a full-fledged beach holiday: although not always warm, but quite clear waters, sandy or pebbly coastlines with a remarkably wide coastline, violent fruitful nature and a lot of historical ruins around. What is especially pleasant is that rest in the Mediterranean bushes can be classified as a budget one:
Mediterranean has the following countries:
- Northern Cyprus
Let’s not cheat by saying that the Mediterranean is one of those successful tourism destinations in all respects that can offer almost everything to a demanding tourist, immediately and at affordable prices. What is there on the hospitable shores of the “Middle Sea”: and vegetable rest in slippers and a swimsuit, and interesting excursions to the sights of almost any period known to historical science, and authentic items of souvenir interest, and rich opportunities for learning foreign languages ”with immersion”, and terribly tasty, and most importantly, healthy Mediterranean cuisine, on whose dishes more than one generation of centenarians has been brought up.
Another characteristic feature of the Mediterranean, a balm for the heart of an attentive tourist, is the exceptional diversity of nationalities, languages, and cultures.
Everyone will find something to their liking: praying at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem or burning through what they have acquired by “overwork” at golden parties in Monaco, inhaling the smell of eternity in the Giza Valley or listening to the chirping of cicadas on emerald Corfu, following the footsteps of the Grand Duchesses on the streets of Istanbul or looking at drowning in the red midday haze Fez.
Among the other pleasant bonuses of the direction are a short flight (you can fly to most resorts in no more than 4 hours), a combined visa regime (we are talking about Schengen), which allows you to wave to your neighbors along the coastline without hassle, in some cases even lack of visa formalities – as in Tunisia or Turkey. Among other things, the Mediterranean – the most financially accessible of the resort overseas seas – you can find a vacation here, starting from 200 EUR”from the nose”. Finally, the climate here is closest to the “universal” – the swimming season from May to October, the absence of debilitating heat in summer and mild, moderately sunny winters. Of the minuses, perhaps the extraordinary popularity of the Mediterranean beaches, which, in terms of the number of bodies per square meter of area, easily outdo the Klondike of the times of the “gold rush”. However, for fans of secluded relaxation, the Mediterranean Sea has in store a few secret corners, such as small Greek islands, where nothing prevents everyday life from being forgotten.
