The New Popular Destination: Black Sea
“BLACK SEA” is a Local Cry for Global Warming
With its lush forests, untouched coves, beautiful beaches, friendly and hospitable people and historical riches, the Black Sea is a corner of paradise. The Black Sea coast owes its vegetation not only to its abundant rain, but also to its humid and foggy air. Black Sea highlands; It is covered with tree species such as fir, spruce, yellow pine, cedar, beech, oak, linden, elm and hornbeam and thousands of wild flowers.
The Black Sea plateaus are empty in winter and festive in summer. Unlike scattered villages in the forest belt, plateau houses are more compact and village-like. The houses are sometimes made of wood, sometimes of stone, and often of wood on top of stone. The plateau season starts in June and ends in September. Festivities are held on a separate plateau every week. The origin of the plateau festivals lies in the "Otçu Migration", which is a common tradition in the Eastern Black Sea Region. In the period when the corns grew 20-30 cm, cleaning between them was called "Squeeze Digging", cleaning the grass at the bottom of the corn for the second time or mowing the grass in the hazelnut orchards with scythes and sickles was called "Grass Mowing". “Otçu Migration” is the name given to the collective excursions of the people who are tired of these jobs and whose jobs are finished, usually in July, to relieve their tiredness and have fun. The people used to spend 15-20 days resting and having fun in this way, between the time of taking the corn grass and starting to collect hazelnuts. According to tradition, during the journey to the highland, a break was taken at the springs, meals were eaten, folk songs were sung, and horns were beaten. Upon the disappearance of these traditions, "Highland Festivals" began to be organized in order to keep these days alive.
