A miraculous natural healing source of its best is this “salt lake”, also called “Liman”, famous for its mud, which is compared to the one of Dead Sea (Israel/Jordan). Only 13 km northwest of Odessa, the Liman is 28 km long and 3 km wide with an average depth of 3 m. It is separated by a salty sandy wall from the sea. Lowest point is 5 m below sea level! The dense saline gave the name to the place (Turkish "kuyalnyk" means "dense"). In 1892, a first balneology treatment center was opened, on the site. Scythian burial mounds and the ruins of a Greek settlement have been found, too.
