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).

  • Sea of Azov is specific, but for children particularly well, shallow and warm. In the evening the water become pink from dusk and lost dregs by clay soil. Although this clay is considered therapeutic and very useful.
