All about the sea in Montenegro

Montenegro – Small Balkan State. Its population equals to the population of the average Russian city and is a little more than 600 thousand people. But for tourists, this country is unusually attractive for many reasons.

The Adriatic Sea is located between the Balkan and Apennine Peninsula. It refers to the semi-jammed seas and enters the Water System of the Mediterranean basin, connecting with the Mediterranean Sea in the southern part through the Sranto Straito, which the locals are romantically called the gates to the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea.

The sea length is a little less than 800 kilometers, and an average width of about 250 kilometers.

The shores in the west are lowlands, cut by lagoons, and in the east – mountainous, with a variety of bays, where comfortable harbor are located. At the coast, the sea is deep, which is very promoted by shipping, which has been actively developing here since ancient times.

Already then the Adriatic was one of the main centers of shipping and trade, on the coast there are many major ports of ports. Of great importance for navigation has the fact that this Sea is considered one of the most calm and safe.

Adriatica is difficult to call a deep sea. The average depth does not exceed 250 meters, and in the north, closer to the mainland, where there was a dry and ancient cities had been and stood, the bottom rises to 20 meters. To the south gradually the depth increases.

The deepest depression is 1230 meters – located in the southeast.

Islands, big and small, almost all populated. The largest of them (more than 300 kilometers) are the names of the Cres, Brac, Krk and Hvar.

The latter accounts for 200 kilometers of the most beautiful beaches.

A distinctive and very valuable feature of this sea is its extraordinary purity and transparency. A considerable role in this phenomenon plays a stony bottom, which is viewed for a record 56 meters. This allows in detail to consider the life of marine inhabitants, which gives the Adriatic resorts a special exotic charm.

By February, even up to +7.12 degrees. Air temperature in winter in some northern regions can be reduced to zero, and for a short time it can even lie snow.

In general, the water temperature is somewhat lower than in other southern seas, which is explained by the high transparency of water. Clear water heats up more slowly and worse muddy.
