In Kievan Rus, the Baltic Sea was called the Varangian Sea. The northernmost part of it reaches the boundaries of the Arctic Circle, the temperature in the southernmost latitudes warms up to 20оС in summer. And on March 22, 9 states, whose shores are washed by its waters, celebrate the Day of the Baltic Sea. It was during this period that the first annual influx of tourists began to the shores of an exotic inland reservoir, part of the Atlantic basin.
Who benefits from rest in the Baltic and the benefits of local resorts
The Baltic Sea coast has been famous for its resorts for decades, which are regularly visited by people who do not react well to the hot tropics. The undoubted advantage is the temperate Baltic climate. It is here that European doctors recommend to relax and improve their health for patients suffering from asthmatic manifestations (the coniferous forests of the Aland Islands with excellent camping or mixed forests near the sanatoriums of Svetlogorsk would be an excellent option), diseases of the endocrine system and hypertensive patients.
Doctors recommend resorts in this area and to those people who are harmful to abrupt changes in climatic zones and time zones. By the way, the water of the Baltic Sea is rich in mineral salts, deposits of medicinal peat mud are located near the coast, and in many resort towns in different countries there are unique sources of mineral water.
An unambiguous advantage of resting on the Baltic Sea is excellent service for a rather modest financial investment. On the "Cote d'Azur" of Sweden, the elite island of Öland, tourists can relax by spending just over $ 1,000 per week in an excellent hotel. The price category of rest in the popular German resort of Rügen and in the Latvian Jurmala will be much lower. And Russian Kaliningrad and its environs have long been loved by our compatriots. The coast is famous for its many attractions. If the relevant documents are properly drawn up, then there is an opportunity to inspect the cultural heritage of several countries.
