According to environmentalists, the province of Cinque Terre on the Ligurian coast of Italy is the cleanest land in the whole Mediterranean. Five small towns clinging to cliffs near the sea, gave the name to this resort – Cinque Terre is translated from Italian as “Five Lands”.

Cinque Terre, Italy – the cleanest land in the Mediterranean

Tourists are attracted to the Cinque Terre not only by the incredibly beautiful cliffs hanging over the sea, at the foot of which old buildings are piled up in a picturesque mess. The life of local residents, traditionally engaged in fishing, growing grapes and actively offering “gifts of nature” to tourists, is also interesting.

On the territory of the Voronezh, Volgograd, Belgorod, Rostov regions of Russia, Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine, the Cretaceous Mountains belt is located in the Don basin and its largest tributary – the Seversky Donets. Departing into the earth’s thickness to a depth of 50 meters, the upper layers of the Cretaceous deposits are mixed with the earth, so grass, shrubs and trees grow on the Cretaceous mountains.
