Diverse Life of the Peoples At the Black Sea

The coast of the Black Sea is mysterious, stunningly beautiful and somewhat dangerous. It has been in the very heart of numerous wars, conflicts and other historic dramas. The countries around the Black Sea are a wild mixture of cultures and traditions, three absolutely different civilizations: the European, the Asian and the Middle East ones. But regardless of a nationality and a social status, practically all people from the countries at the coast work hard to make their dream come true – spend a couple of weeks at the sea.

A Romanian photographer Petrut Calinescu travelled through the countries at the Black Sea to capture the magnificent diversity of the cultural traditions and daily life of these peoples.
