Coming to a sanatorium in Crimea, a person finds himself in new conditions for himself, he is affected by solar radiation, humidity and wind direction, ozone saturation, temperature, vegetation and even the landscape. It is these conditions that determine the background against which the treatment will be most effective.
The main principle of balneology is the use of health-improving natural factors for the treatment of people and the development of social and hygienic conditions for sanatoriums. The methodology of resort treatment includes well-known balneotherapy, peloid therapy, climatotherapy with walks by the sea, sunbathing, sea bathing, physiotherapy, and all this can only be given in excess by the Crimea:
In fact, in prehistoric times, Taurida was a single whole with the North-West Caucasus. In view of this, geologists, biologists and paleontologists are not surprised by the almost complete identity of the two landscapes. Historically, the South Coast is the tip of the Caucasian mountains, and two northern thirds of the peninsula is a continuation of the Azov-Kuban lowland, where salt lakes prevail. Crimea was not an isolated territory. The salt lakes in the Crimea, scattered for tens of kilometers, are like a continuation of the "placers" of the Taman Peninsula and the north-west of the Anapa district.
The salinity of this "Caucasian-Crimean" region is explained by a number of natural processes that started during the formation of karst basins - failures caused by the washing out of soft rocks and the subsequent formation of mud volcanoes. Over time, these huge pits have already become a place for underground waters. Wind and too much sun activity stimulated excess evaporation. There was less liquid here, and accordingly, more of the mineral component. Such lakes are called mineral lakes. There is one more subspecies of these reservoirs - estuary. It is in the Azov region and the Crimean Black Sea region that there are most of them. The fact is that storms and gusty winds over the years separated the sea bays from the main water area by sandy and shell shallows. Over time, the bays turned into closed bays - estuaries. Salt lakes in Crimea, for the most part, have just such a genesis. And then the same story happened with them as with karst water bowls. They also became mineral - salty (only the evaporated salt was not underground, but sea).
There are 300 lakes on the Tauride Peninsula in total. Salt lakes of Crimea (both karst and estuary) have different levels of mineralization. The largest and most salty ones will become the subject of our review. The following list of Crimean salt lakes includes 10 water bowls with proven medicinal or tourist value.
This “recovery point” is undoubtedly the most famous among Russians and Ukrainians. After all, it is the shallowest (the greatest depth is 1.2 meters). This circumstance attracts thousands of families with small children here. The area of the object is 75.5 square kilometers (which makes it the largest Crimean lake). On the shore of water recreation there is a salt production plant. The location of the water body is the space of the Saki region, adjacent to the urban district of Evpatoria. The name of the salt marsh is translated from Tatar as "stinking mud". An interesting feature is the ability to go fishing here. After all, the reservoir is not so salty.
Sasyk's neighbor lake is named Sakskoye. It speaks eloquently about the location of the reservoir (within the city of Saki and its suburbs, therefore there are most of the sanatoriums here). The very word "Saki" is a memory of the ancient Indo-Iranian tribes, whose descendants were found here by the Horde (future Crimean Tatars). There are plenty of recreational facilities for both children and adults, as well as beaches that are simply equipped with everything you need. Therefore, half of the fans of Evpatoria go exactly here - in the sanatorium "Saki", "Imeni Burdenko", "Imeni Pirogov" and others. The water bowl has no drains, its depth is the same as the Sasyk-Sivash (with which it is connected by a canal). Sakskoe is crossed by several dams, along which pedestrian and car routes are laid. The salinity level is average. Has an evaporator section (Ladle).
Lake Moinak is the second small "satellite" of Sasyk, the place where the first mud baths appeared in Russia (there is even a mud therapy museum in the Moinaki region). After all, the reservoir is located right in the center of Evpatoria. Accordingly, there are no fewer sanatorium complexes here than on the shore of the Saki reservoir. Most of them were built on the streets of Kirov, Kievskaya, Pavlik Morozov. They combine balneology with sports and massages.
This lake is worthy of your attention, as it differs from other estuary reservoirs in that the water in it constantly evaporates, increasing the percentage of salinity every year. Perhaps very soon Salt Lake will become the very first recreational recreation of the Crimea. It lies not far from Evpatoria - between the sea and the village of Molochnoe (western suburb of the large village of Zaozernoye). A branch of the railway is laid along the eastern bank. The fact is that salt was mined here in the old days. The size of the water bowl is small - in the largest diameter it has only 2 kilometers. It is easy to find it by its smell ... A visit to the reservoir is free. By the way, get here faster through Evpatoria, and then - Zaozernoe. Suburban buses are constantly running up to it.
