The Rotten Sea
Sivash, also known as the Rotten Sea for its pungent smell, is a large system of shallow salty lagoons on the northeastern coast of the Crimean Peninsula. The marshy area includes an abandoned Soviet-era salt mine while continued evaporation of the area produces stunning views as the water leaves behind tons of salt. The scenery is stunning especially the sharp contrast between the blood-red sea, created by algae, and the blue sky.
