Taganrog Bay or Tahanrih Bay is the northeastern arm of the Sea of Azov. It also may be perceived as a flooded estuary of the Don River.GeographyThe bay serves as a natural boundary between the Kuban coast line in Russia and the northern Azov littoral region in Ukraine and Russia. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the international boundary here hasn't been established.At its northeast end is the mouth of the Don River. Length: about 140km, width at the mouth: 31km, median depth: about 5m. It may freeze some winters from December to March.Two other rivers, the Kalmius and the Mius, flow into the bay. The flow of water into the bay is the chief factor for current development in the Sea of Azov.LandformsIts mouth is marked by the Dolgaya Spit on the south and the Bilosaray Spit (Bilosarayska Spit) on the north. It abounds in sandy spits that partly enclose shallow bays. The bay contains "Sandy Isles" (Песчаные острова, Пісчані острови). Rivers Don, Kalmius, Mius and Yeya drain into the Taganrog Bay Basin.The major ports are Taganrog, Mariupol (Ukraine), and Yeysk. Rostov-on-Don is a few miles up the Don river.

  • Held a month (1 June-1 July) at Petrushinskoj in the village of Kose Petrushino. Not bathed because neither the water look scary, not something to get there water rotten. Floats dead fish. it is worth stepping into the water immediately to knee leg oblepljajut rachki. Can they harmless, but it's disgusting. And yes the spit-it's not mind-watered down a wild and beaches provincial shares technical water runoff. Sometimes such dark water in this run-off ... And broken glass at the beach-buckets to collect.

  • It is interesting to take a walk along the waterfront in the evening and watch the sunset. There are sculptures and monuments. On weekends there are many people.

  • The Bay is not large, with one bank seen another. Relatively shallow depth in the deepest point does not exceed 4-5 meters, and near the shore have to go 100-150 meters to plunge headfirst into the water. The water is fresh, turbid. Coast occupy the clouds not biting mosquitoes, especially in the evening and at night. The water is warm from May to September. The bottom is muddy as in the River, on some of the beaches of sand near the shore. In the Bay you can enjoy wind surfing and Yachting. You can fish from the shore, small fish well Pecks goby.
