Almaty resident collected interesting facts about the Caspian Sea

The man posted his publication in a social network; he wished to tell nothing about himself, only having informed that he loves his homeland and motivates his friends to develop domestic tourism, InAktau reports.

                A resident of Almaty, who decided to leave his name not for wide publicity, was able to tell only that he was just doing what he loved heartily. In his spare time he studies literature and the Internet, collecting interesting information and facts about nature and sights of Kazakhstan. As he told the correspondent of InAktau, he keeps an online diary in social networks. Judging by the feedback of users, he succeeds perfectly, because in the presentation of the material he finds interesting facts using artistic images, for example, comparing the depth of the Caspian Sea with the three Eiffel towers stacked on top of each other. We offer readers to get acquainted with its contents; spelling and punctuation of the author of the publication are preserved.

                "The Caspian Sea received its name in honor of the ancient Caspian tribe that lived on the coast Before the Common Era. The Caspian Sea is the world's largest terminal lake, which has characteristics of both the sea and the lake. In the past, the Caspian Sea, together with the Black Sea, was part of the Sarmatian Sea, which was divided about 1 million years ago. The Romans called the Caspian Sea “a sea” because of its size and salt water. The Caspian Sea has the name of Khazar in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Azerbaijani, and Turkmen. The area of ​​the Caspian Sea is 371 thousand square kilometers. If there was a state on this square, it would occupy 62 place, having settled between Japan and Germany. The depth of the sea is 1025 meters, second only to Baikal and Tanganyika. At this depth, you can drown three Eiffel towers, set against each other. The major rivers flowing into the Caspian Sea are the Volga, Terek, Sulak, Samur (Russia), Ural, Emba (Kazakhstan), Kura (Azerbaijan), Atrek (Turkmenistan), Sefidrud (Iran). A normal detailed map of the Caspian Sea did not exist until 1719. In 1719, the first expedition of Bekovich-Cherkassky took place, during which the terrain studies were carried out, and over the next few years the map finally appeared. 850 species of animals live in the sea. The most unique animal of the Caspian is the Caspian seal. The Caspian seal in former years could easily be found across the entire water area of ​​the sea. Local residents even assure that during swimming in the sea or fishing it was easy to see how the seals are swimming nearby. At the moment, the population of the Caspian seal has decreased tens of times, and the species is on the verge of extinction. The Caspian Sea supplies about 90% of the world's sturgeon. If you thought that black caviar is the most expensive, then you were wrong. The most valuable caviar, the cost of which for 100 grams is 2000 US dollars, is the caviar of the beluga albino "Almas". The caviar has a color from light gray to white, and the lighter the caviar, the more valuable it is. This fish is harvested in the Caspian Sea in shore of Iran. On the shoreline of the Caspian Sea there are 13 cities: 6 Azerbaijani, 2 Kazakh, 2 Russian, 2 Iranian and 1 Turkmen. The Caspian Sea flows round of the shores of 5 countries: Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Iran and Russia. Accordingly, the sea is divided between these 5 countries. Kazakhstan accounts for 29% (2340 km) of the coastline, for Turkmenistan - 21%, for Azerbaijan - 20%, for Russia - 16%, for the Republic of Iran - 14%. " We do not presume to judge the reliability of the facts, we think that only experts can judge them, but the content has a lot of cognitive and interesting not only for children, but also for adults.
