The Awesome Mediterranean Sea

In Latin the word "Mediterranean" broken as medius and terra stands for the "middle of the world." As a sea, it is surrounded by the Mediterranean region, almost completely bounded by land and is connected to the Atlantic Ocean. Although the Mediterranean Sea is defined as a separate body of water, technically, it is part of the Atlantic Ocean.

The reason why Mediterranean cruises are so popular, especially to the beaches is because they sail on some of the most beautiful shades of water, which is also warm and salty. In addition, the enchanting landscape and architectural and historical structures of the islands and mainlands give them an intriguing quality. Some of the rivers that empty into the Mediterranean Sea are the Rhone (France), Ebro (Spain), Nile (Egypt), and Po (Italy).

The historical significance of this sea arises from the fact that many Stone Age tools were discovered along its shores. Later it became the hub of the Roman, Greek, Mycenaean, Carthaginian, and Phoenician civilization.

From the perspective of tourism, the Mediterranean Sea's beautiful coastline, intriguing history, enjoyable climate, and varied culture has made it a popular tourist destination.

The countries falling in the Mediterranean region and popular tourist destinations are Spain, Gibraltar, Monte Carlo, France, Croatia, Italy, Bosnia, Slovenia, Albania, Montenegro, Greece, Egypt, Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco, Libya, and Algeria along with the island states of Cyprus and Malta.
