Bert Spiertz – Tales from the Black Sea
|Olaf Tempelman; Bert Spiertz
The Black Sea has been a crossroads between Europe and Asia for millennia. Its coasts are meeting places of contrasting cultures, religions and ideologies with just as much potential for serious conflict. During a number of trips, Bert Spiertz followed this more than four thousand kilometer long coast through six countries, with Istanbul as the start and end point. Tales from the Black Sea takes you from the Bosphorus and Turkish port cities such as Trabzon to Batumi in Georgia and the fashionable Russian spa town of Sochi. But also to the Crimean peninsula annexed by Russia and the Ukrainian cities of Cherson and Odesa, to the beautiful but endangered water world of the Danube delta and the Bulgarian Riviera.
